"USC is basically Michael's dream school and where he has wanted to go for some time so he didn't wait long to commit. I really think it's an excellent fit for him. Michael is a talented player and a very good pass rusher. He'll fit in well there with what Coach Orgeron likes to do."
Stuart joins his Westlake teammate Jimmy Miller who had earlier committed to the Trojans. As a junior, Stuart was the League Player of the Year, County Defensive Player of the Year and also earned All-State Underclass honors after totaling 74 tackles and 17 quarterback sacks.
Stuart is also a standout receiver and caught 32 balls for 760 yards and 10 touchdowns but will likely play on the defensive side of the ball for the Trojans.
