Blair Angulo/ESPNLocal proximity could play a factor for Marvell Tell.
USC entered the race for the No. 3-rated safety in the 2015 class by offering in early May. All signs would suggest the Trojans have some work to do to land Tell, who lives near the Rose Bowl and wears a pair of blue and gold UCLA gloves during practice.

Yet, the 6-foot-1, 175-pound athlete has no allegiance.
