Tings give verbal commit to USC

Twin recruits Ryan and Brandon Ting from Logan HS have given verbal commitments to the Trojans. The brothers are both being recruited as cornerbacks and bring tremendous speed as well as size and athleticism.

According to their father, it was Trojan head coach Pete Carroll who made a difference for the twins in making the final decision: "Coach Carroll showed them a lot of personal attention and that meant a lot to them both," Dr. Ting told PacWest Football. "They felt comfortable at USC and are excited about their decision."

Brandon (5-10.5, 170) is a talented offensive player who starred at quarterback last year and accounted for 2,500 yards and 32 touchdowns. He also runs a 4.4 40 and has a 31" vertical leap so the skills are there to make the full-time move to defense.

Ryan (5-10.5, 165) accounted for almost 2,000 yards and 21 touchdowns while playing WR and RB and he has run a 4.38 40 and also has a 31" vertical.

"Brandon and me decided a few weeks ago that we wanted to go to USC," Ryan told PacWest Football. "They hinted at the one day camp last month that we might be offered but we hadn't gotten it yet so on Tuesday or Wednesday, I don't remember exactly, we called Coach Carroll and he decided to offer us both. That's when we committed. We were actually born in Southern California and still have a lot of family there. Brandon and I love the area and we've followed USC for awhile. We know all about the tradition of the school and we believe in Coach Carroll. We're both very relieved and excited to be Trojans."

"A lot of the schools wanted me for receiver but Coach Carroll told me they have some defensive backs graduating and they need us both on defense. If that is what's best for the team, that's what we'll do. Coach Carroll said we would have a chance to play early, possibly in nickel situations so we're looking forward to that."

The brothers both carry a 4.2 GPA and starred on the state level track team for Logan.
