Fitts ready to be a Trojan 

December, 9, 2012
As fellow official visitors walked toward the field through the Coliseum tunnel on Saturday night, USC defensive end commit Kylie Fitts (Redlands, Calif./Redlands East Valley) looked up at the stands and envisioned a sellout crowd. He imagined himself in a USC uniform -- a thought that sent chills through his body.

Perhaps the biggest Trojans fan among USC’s verbal commitments, Fitts fulfilled a lifelong goal this weekend by officially visiting the campus.

“Stopping by the Coliseum on Saturday night was probably the best part of the whole visit,” Fitts said. “Growing up, it has always been a dream of mine to play at the Coliseum. Going through that tunnel gave me chills. I got caught up in the moment, picturing the crowd. Coach (Ed) Orgeron was there telling us to imagine taking the field and playing under these lights. ... It was amazing. I got a lot out of the visit. Being there on campus so much this year on unofficial visits, there’s not a lot of new stuff to learn. But talk to Coach O and being there this weekend gave me the feeling of already being enrolled. I can’t wait.”
