Langley talks USC commitment

WeAreSC's Garry Paskwietz caught up with ESPN 300 athlete Isaiah Langley (Pleasanton, Calif./Foothill) shortly after he announced his verbal commitment to USC on Tuesday at the SPARQ Rating National Championship.

BEAVERTON, Ore. -- The first day of The Opening was highlighted by a commitment for the Trojans from Isaiah Langley (Pleasanton, California/Foothill), the No. 7-rated athlete in the ESPN 300 rankings. Langley (6-foot, 164 pounds) is a versatile receiver/corner who will focus on the defensive side of the ball for the Trojans. With good height and long arms to go along with solid coverage skills, Langley is the latest example of USC coach Steve Sarkisian's efforts to upgrade the cornerback spot.

"I'm a lockdown corner," Langley said. "I can bring some kind of physicality, but for the most part I'm a coverage guy."
