Here are updates on the remaining players on the USC wish list:
DB Max Redfield: After Redfield decommitted from USC earlier this fall, it was assumed he would end up elsewhere, most likely at Notre Dame. The Trojan coaches made a strong run in recent weeks, but based upon his comments in recent days it would be an upset if he didn’t choose the Irish. Redfield plans to announce at the Under Armour All-America game.
DB Leon McQuay III: It has been a methodical process for McQuay, who is very interested in music production and has gone to great lengths to research how each of his potential schools can help in that area. With his visits now complete, McQuay will look to make his announcement at the Under Armour game with a goal of enrolling for the spring at his school of choice. His five visits were to USC, Michigan, Vanderbilt, Oregon and Florida State, while the new staff at South Florida is making a late pitch as well.
OL Desmond Harrison: The Trojans got a visit this past weekend from Harrison and they made his final short list along with Texas, Oklahoma and ASU. Harrison will decide in late January and will not enroll until next fall.
DT A’Shawn Robinson: The Texas verbal commit has been quiet in recent weeks since his visit to USC earlier this month. There have been conflicting stories about Robinson, with some reports indicating that USC is the one school that could tempt him to change his verbal, while others close to him think he was just visiting USC for a trip to Los Angeles.
LB Trey Johnson: Scheduled for a visit to USC on Jan. 17 but does not list USC in his top five.
LB Quinton Powell: The Florida decommit has said USC is a school he would consider but so far no visit has been confirmed. Powell attends the same high school as USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams.
