Scout.com learned Wednesday night that USC has verbally offered Gig Harbor, Wash. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and with that news comes word that the Trojans, along with UCLA, have now moved to the top of his wish list with a bullet.

"I just got off the phone with coach (Lane) Kiffin," Seferian-Jenkins told Scout.com. "They said that they are verbally offering me and that a written offer will be out in the mail tomorrow."

Seferian-Jenkins, who already had 20 offers to date and this week already said that he's close to narrowing things down to his final 10, reacted a little differently when he got the news of this newest offer. "(USC) are at the top of my list," he said, matter-of-factly. "Them and UCLA."

So what is it about USC that Seferian-Jenkins likes? "What's not to like?" he countered. "Coach Kiffin, he's been in the NFL, he knows how to win big games."

Seferian-Jenkins, who will be unofficially visiting four Florida schools at the end of next month, is still expecting offers from Alabama and Tennessee next week.
