Pinkard commits to USC

It's been one of the worst kept secrets of recruiting that Josh Pinkard was a silent commit to the Trojans but after this weekend Josh says he is ready to make it official:

"The trip was great, no negatives. Going into the trip I basically had it in the back of my mind that I might finalize things, it was right there in my mind and it just needed to come out. I thought I would wait until after taking all my visits but after spending time with the coaches and seeing the way they interact with everybody and the good atmosphere around the team it just pushed me over the edge.

I'm real excited to be going to USC. To have the opportunity to play for the top coach in the nation is great. We watched practice yesterday and it was at such a high intensity level for the first day back, it was like they didn't lose a step at all. This is where I want to be." Top Stories
