Aaron Corp visit recap

The newly-minted California High School Player of the Year got a taste of where he hopes to continue his legacy when he made his official visit.

Orange (Calif.) Lutheran quarterback Aaron Corp took his trip to USC over the weekend.

"I really enjoyed it," said Corp. "It was a really good time. Garrett Green was my host."

Corp said he was glad to hear the news that Steve Sarkisian and Lane Kiffin were staying on the Trojan staff and was able to spend plenty of time with them this weekend.

"I was relieved that they both decided to stay because I've developed a good relationship with them and I was a little concerned about them leaving," said Corp. "I got to talk with them both over the weekend and we went over some of the offense."

Corp also got to spend a lot of time with several of the incoming recruits as well as many of the players already on the team.

"I talked with quite a bit of the players and I'm looking forward to playing with them," said Corp. "I talk to Mark Sanchez quite a bit about a lot of different things."

After having one of the best seasons of any player in the country, Corp, despite his commitment, was still on the wish list of many colleges, but he never wavered and said most schools respected his commitment to USC.

"It didn't really get that bad since I was committed, but I am looking forward to signing day and getting ready to play for USC," said Corp.

One of the finest players in Orange County history, Corp is very aware of the history of OC quarterbacks who experienced success at USC, including Heisman Trophy winners Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart.

"I hope that I can live up to that," said Corp. "That was a big part of the reason why I committed to USC in the first place because I want to play with the best. I don't think that there is more pressure on me because of it."

Corp's shining moment this year was leading Orange Lutheran to the California Division II State Championship, which to him, meant more than being named the state player of the year.

"Winning that honor was great but it was more an extension of my team," said Corp. "I couldn't have won it without them and winning the state championship means more to me than anything."

Corp finished his senior year with 2,379 yards passing and 21 touchdowns while rushing for 1,197 yards and eight touchdowns.
