BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Even with dynamic two-way athletes Michiah Quick (Fresno, Calif./Central) and John “JuJu” Smith (Long Beach, Calif./Poly) lining up with the offense Monday in the first day of The Opening, the defensive backs were a standout group as it relates to USC recruiting.

Roommates Adoree’ Jackson (Gardena, Calif./Serra) and Adarius Pickett (El Cerrito, Calif./El Cerrito), as well as 2015 defensive back Iman Marshall (Long Beach, Calif./Poly), four-star cornerback Tony Brown (Beaumont, Texas/Ozen) and four-star safety Quincy Wilson (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./University School of Nova South) all turned in good showings during one-on-one drills. Brown, the nation’s No. 5-rated cornerback and No. 3-rated prospect in the state of Texas, also reached the SPARQ championship finals after posting some impressive numbers in preliminary testing, including a pair of 4.35 times in the 40-yard dash.

Tony Brown
Blair Angulo/ESPNNo. 5 cornerback Tony Brown is still very interested in USC.
“On a daily basis, I try to contact coaches that recruit me,” said Brown, a world-class sprinter ranked No. 27 in the ESPN 300. “I try to contact every coach. I’m still open. My month of June was all track and field, so I haven’t had time to chill and go through everything. Whenever I get the chance, I’ll definitely start narrowing everything down.”
