However, there was plenty of doubt whether he'd end up at USC after his last trip to South Bend. Tyler even told Allen Wallace on April 24 he was 70 percent sure he would commit to Notre Dame.
"After I got home and the hype wore off from Jimmy's commitment and all of the excitement at Notre Dame, I decided I couldn't see myself there for four years," Tyler said. "Notre Dame is a great school and Charlie Weis is a great coach, but USC just felt right. I've actually felt I'd go to USC for a long time, but I just had to make sure. I love the coaches at SC, the intensity, the energy and the style of football they play."
"I knew those two had committed to USC and it's definitely something to consider when looking at a team I'll playing for," Tyler said. Tyler also speaks on occasion, to Trojan commit Chris Galippo, who informed Scout.com three weeks ago Tyler and two others had committed to USC, but they would hold off announcing.
Tyler was also aware running back Broderick Green was a USC commit and that the depth chart was stacked at the running back position.
"I'm not worried about that," Tyler said. "I have a lot of confidence in what I can do and at USC the best play. All I can ask for is an opportunity to compete, and I'll have that. It would be the same at any school."
Tyler's father, Wendell, was star running back at UCLA and the Rams and Tyler said he had his father's blessing to attend USC.
"He doesn't have any problem with me going to USC," Tyler said. "He said I should go to the school that I felt most comfortable with."
Will Marc's teammate Marshall Jones be the next commit for the Trojans?
