J.D. Booty commits to USC

The USC Trojans class of 2004 got off to a terrific start on Sunday when quarterback John David Booty, considered one of the top recruits in the country, gave a verbal commit to USC after spending time watching Trojan spring ball practices over the weekend.

Booty (6-3, 190, 4.6) of Shreveport Evangel, Louisiana is a true passing phenom. He is the younger brother of Cleveland Browns quarterback, Josh, and John David will break all of his brothers passing records before he graduates. As a  sophomore in 2001, he led his Evangel team to the Louisiana 5A State Championship while passing for over 4,000 yards. John David helped the Eagles repeat as state champs in 2002, passing for 3,956 yards and 37 touchdowns.

"I just feel like it's the right place to be for me," Booty told Daily News. "I feel like I want to be here and spend my college career here, and I really look forward to coming to USC."
