Quarterback Matt Corral is currently just a high school sophomore, but some are already hailing the USC commit as the next great Trojan QB.
While Corral is looking forward to his future in cardinal and gold, his focus right now is on his high school team. In a recent 7-on-7 passing event, Corral led his Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian teammates against some quality competition, playing Calabasas (Calif.), San Juan Capistrano's JSerra and West Hills Chaminade.
After losing his top receiving target from last season, 6-foot-5 wide receiver Michael Pittman, who signed with and enrolled at USC, Corral was busy working to build a rapport with his new squad. That includes another go-to Pittman, freshman speedster Mycah, and big-bodied Stanford-committed tight end Colby Parkinson.
With Oaks Christian installing some new formations and plays with some new faces, things weren't always smooth. Corral tossed a handful of interceptions during the event, but he also showed the arm and touch that has him projected to be one of the top passers in the 2018 class.
"I feel like it went pretty well. I learned a lot," Corral said after the event. "Coach [Jim] Benkert got on me a couple times for bad reads. That's just the first time we ran our formations. I made a few mistakes there and fixed it."
