ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- After four prospects decommitted from the USC Trojans since the beginning of November, the Trojans have finally got some good news as ESPN 150 safety Leon McQuay III (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) verbally committed to USC tonight during the Under Armour All-America Game.

The 6-foot-2, 183-pound four-star athlete selected the Trojans over Florida State, Oregon, Vanderbilt and Michigan.

As a senior, McQuay totaled 54 tackles and five interceptions on defense. He also added five receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown on offense.

McQuay, the nation’s No. 3 safety and a starter in Friday's UA Game, is expected to enroll early at USC and be eligible to play spring football.

With McQuay's decision, the Trojans have 15 verbal commitments, including 10 who are members of the ESPN 150. Each of the 15 commitments is ranked as a four-star or higher.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Leon McQuay III (Seffner Fla./Armwood) certainly made the most of his Saturday.

The ESPN 150 safety started off in Gainesville, Fla., unexpectedly taking in the Florida-Kentucky game before heading up the road to Florida State for the showdown with Clemson. He wasn't able to spend too much time speaking with the Florida coaches because of the time crunch.

"It was all right," McQuay said of his time at the Gators' game. "I just watched the game and that's it."

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Wide receiver Artavis Scott (Tarpon Springs, Fla./East Lake), a 2014 prospect, was one of the top wideouts to compete at the Jimbo Fisher Camp on Thursday. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound athlete says he has enjoyed his experience in Tallahassee.

"I love it," Scott said. "It's a home town, it's in Florida, they have the best weather and I love the facilities. I'll probably be back to see some games this year."

Scott picked up an offer while camping at Florida in June and said he will likely visit UF for a game this year as well.

"I love the coaches at Florida," he said. "Every time I go I could just see myself there. I like Florida, I like how they fit me -- I just liked it. I'll probably go see some games at Florida too and maybe UCF."
