Another week brought another big performance from the USC Trojans, as their 40-17 victory over the Washington Huskies came in front of several high-profile recruits.
The game capped off a long weekend for defensive end Arik Armstead (Elk Grove, Calif./Pleasant Grove), who attended the USC basketball game on Friday and USC football game Saturday. Armstead visited along with his father and spent time with his older brother, current USC defensive tackle Armond Armstead. After decommitting from the Trojans last month, Armstead has seen his recruitment take off, with schools such as Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon and Michigan making pushes. But USC continues to recruit Armstead hard for football and basketball, and likely will remain in the picture for the long run.
Cornerback Kevon Seymour (Pasadena, Calif./Muir) was also in attendance, and USC's win should help the Trojans, as Washington is one of the schools battling for his commitment. The local pull of USC could wind up as a big factor for Seymour, who still will take his final four visits before announcing a commitment.
Several recruits enjoyed USC's 40-17 victory over Washington, while top junior Su'a Cravens has his role clarified.
