Cary Angeline discusses USC loss to Stanford

Cary Angeline is one of USC's biggest commits with no depth at tight end on the Trojans current roster. The 6-foot-7, 240-pound four-star discusses his first chance to see USC play this season.

Exton (Pa.) Downingtown East tight end Cary Angeline was a surprise commitment for USC last summer, and while Trojan fans are handwringing over Saturday’s loss to Stanford, the four-star commit was ho-hum about the game.

“They don’t have Pac-12 Network where I live, so it was the first game I’ve been able to watch,” said Angeline. “It was a hard fought game and Stanford outplayed USC a little bit at the end.

“Offensively, USC has a bunch of good skill players and they rotate a lot. They used at least one tight end most of the game, so I definitely tried to visualize myself playing out there.”

And that’s not easy to do when USC has one recruited scholarship tight end on its roster this season.

But unlike most Trojan fans, Angeline isn't worried about USC winning games going forward.

“USC is a great team and I’m sure they’ll find a way to bounce back,” said Angeline. “The defense can play better, but I’m sure they’ll get on it and fix that problem.”

Thus far, Downingtown East has had no such problems going 3-0, including a big win last week over traditional Pennsylvania power North Penn. Angeline had four catches and a touchdown reception in the game as a tight end. He also had an interception late to ice the victory.

“It’s a big year for me and I’m really excited,” said Angeline. “Throughout the summer I worked on my route running and I’ve tried to perfect that a little bit.

“I’ve also been working on my blocking tons the past two years. It’s come a long way.”

Recruiting wise, Angeline was one of the few USC commits who completely shut down the process after making his decision public. His disinterest in entertaining interest from other programs has not changed.

“That’s still the case,” said Angeline. “It’s hard to get out (to USC) during the season, but we’re hoping to get out there for the UCLA game for sure.

“If not, I’ll take my official visit in January.” Top Stories
