DB gets offer from USC

Westlake Village (CA.) Oaks Christian safety Marshall Jones already had an impressive list of offers before him. But that list got even better when the USC decided to offer the talented athlete.

"Yeah, I just got offered by SC yesterday. I talked to Coach Sark around noon yesterday, and he told me to call back at night. I talked to him and Coach Carroll and they said that they were offering me."

When asked if the SC offer placed them higher on his list of schools, he replied.

"Yeah, it puts them up there."

Although Jones is a very heavily recruited prospect, he did admit that the SC offer caught him off guard.

"It was real shocking when I first found out about them offering."

While Jones has an impressive list of offers, he did admit that there are a few things that may help the Trojans out.

"I really like the program they have there. And I also like how competitive they are."

Jones has narrowed his list of suitors to five.

"My top five are SC, Oregon, Arizona, Tennessee, and Michigan."
