It took a selfless decision to turn Jason Hatcher into a Southern Cal commitment.

The four-star defensive end from Louisville (Ky.) Trinity nearly committed to two other schools before finally visiting USC at his mother's behest this summer. He came back with a sense of conviction about where he wanted to go to school. Soon, it was obvious that Donna Hatcher's only son wouldn't be around Kentucky much longer, despite her wishes for him to attend a college nearby.
