ESPN 150 safety McQuay III to visit USC
November, 5, 2012

LOS ANGELES -- It didn't take long for the USC coaching staff to zero in on four-star safety Leon McQuay III (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) following the decommitment of four-star athlete Max Redfield (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) on Sunday night.
McQuay has scheduled his official visit to USC for the weekend of Dec. 7, he said via text message Monday afternoon. He is set to take an official trip to Michigan this weekend and has already visited Vanderbilt (Oct. 12) and Oregon (Oct. 26).
The Trojans have been considered the favorite in McQuay's recruitment for some time, and it appears that Redfield's decommitment might have opened up a spot for the nation's No. 3-rated safety prospect. McQuay took an unofficial trip to Los Angeles over Labor Day weekend in early September and thoroughly enjoyed his stay. USC had 18 verbal commitments at that time.
It's interesting to note McQuay's visit date, as Dec. 7 also happens to be the weekend all of USC's intended early enrollees have planned to be in town for their official visits. If McQuay hasn't committed to USC by then, expect the coaching staff -- as well as the eight commits scheduled to be on campus that weekend -- to put on the full-court press.
