Faces of the Future: Randall Telfer

Four-star tight end Randall Telfer knew as soon as the Trojans offered that it was the school that he wanted to attend, but as is known to happen during the recruiting process, he was thrown a curveball with the departure of Pete Carroll to the Seattle Seahawks. Look inside for more on Telfer's journey to USC and his plans for the future.

The Road to USC

Randall Telfer was one of the first players to commit to USC in the 2010 class, making his intentions known almost a full year before Signing Day.

"I have been hanging around that school pretty much all my life and following the team. It was just like a second home to me," Telfer said. "Over a long period of time I realized that there really is no other school for me."

The four-star tight end said he knew as soon as the Trojans offered that it was the school that he wanted to attend, but as is known to happen during the recruiting process, he was thrown a curveball with the departure of Pete Carroll to the Seattle Seahawks.

"At first I didn't believe it," he said. "I was at school and one my friends told me and I thought that maybe it was a hoax or just a rumor."

After confirming the surprising news that he wouldn't be playing for Pete Carroll, the highly sought after recruit gathered with his family, and once again evaluated his options for the future.

"Me and my family were really reconsidering my commitment to USC, but then we realized that from the beginning I had been in love with USC," Telfer said. "Originally I made a commitment to USC and not to Pete Carroll, so I knew that USC would get another great coach, like they did, Lane Kiffin."

The hiring of Lane Kiffin did a lot to ease any of his lingering concerns about USC.

"It felt like meeting my family again," Telfer said. "Coach Kiffin, Coach Orgeron and Coach Gregg were all recruiting me at Tennessee so I had already become close with them throughout the recruiting process."

With his mind made up, Telfer then took it upon himself to do all that he could to keep the star-studded class together.

"I just told (recruits) that, ‘In the beginning you were following USC. You were with them and you committed to USC, not Coach Carroll. Even without Carroll, USC will still produce a great football team and is still a great school, so there is no point in going elsewhere.'"

The message from Telfer and others, along with the hard work of the new coaching staff, resulted in yet another top five recruiting class for the Men of Troy.

The Opportunity Ahead

The tight end position was one of the biggest concerns during spring practice, with injuries, inexperience and a lack of depth leaving plenty of questions as we look ahead to fall camp.

The good news for USC fans is that help is on the way from three of the most highly-touted tight ends in the 2010 recruiting class.

"I think there is a good opportunity for me, same with all the new tight ends coming in," Telfer said. "I think we all have equal opportunity because we all have something to bring to the table."

Xavier Grimble, Randall Telfer and Christian Thomas were all ranked in the top ten at their position by Scout.com, and there is a good chance that at least one of three will contribute this coming season, due to the Trojans' uncertainty at the tight end position.

"We are not at each other's throats about who is going to be playing first," Telfer said. "We are all competitive and want to compete, but we are actually looking forward to it, we are trying to get a championship and win games."

Telfer plans to do all he can to make an immediate impact, but he insisted that he isn't against the idea of taking a redshirt year to add weight, experience on the practice field and learn the offense.

"Previously I was actually considering redshirting, but I was talking to my coach and they were telling me that they only have a few tight ends," he explained. "I am thinking that I am going to try and come in and get early playing time."

Telfer graduated from Rancho Cucamonga High School just two weeks ago, but he has already gotten a brief taste of college football, participating in the players-only throwing session last week.

"At first I was a little nervous but once I got into the mix of things I was cool," he said. "The game is a little bit faster but I think after some time I will get acclimated to it."

While the speed of the game is one of the most difficult aspects of transitioning to the next level, Telfer has quickly learned that the improved quarterback play is one of the immediate benefits.

"Playing with guys like Barkley and Mustain, they are putting the ball in the perfect spot every time for you to go and get it," he said. "It's a receiver's dream."
