Calling it a pipeline would be inaccurate, but USC has had a high rate of success recruiting Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland High School in recent years.
Both former defensive tackle and first round pick Leonard Williams and
current junior linebacker Quentin Powell are Buccaneer alums. USC would

But Fagan’s trip to Southern California also gave him a feel for life
away from South Florida.
“[It’s a big deal] because I’m guessing it’s never cold here,” said
Fagan. “I like the heat, so I can always work out and do what I like to
“I’m supposed to visit USC and I heard they have a wonderful tradition.
It’s very big, so I just want to go through their tradition and see how
