Scott Fink/ESPNHSUSC has had a hard time in recent classes holding on to its top commit. Will Elkton, Md., defensive tackle Kenny Bigelow buck that trend?

Chris Madrid (Santa Ana, Calif. ): Hello Erik, Kenny Bigelow is as close to a must get as USC has ever had because he has potential to step right in and start and instantly improves the lack of depth currently at the DT position. My concern is USC has had a recent history of losing the top player in each recruiting cycle. (De'Anthony Thomas, Arik Armstead, Seantrel Henderson). My two-part question is how solid of a commit is he? Does his participation in showcases help or hurt this recruitment?
