USC Loses Four-Star Recruit Dakoda Fields to Oregon Ducks

Fields flips his commitment, dealing a blow to USC's 2024 recruiting class.

The USC Trojans’ recruiting class has hit another snag as they lose a valuable asset. Dakoda Fields, a four-star cornerback hailing from Los Angeles, has announced his decision to join the Oregon Ducks, reversing his commitment from USC. While Fields initially pledged to stay in Southern California after high school, he had Oregon on his mind all along.

After an unofficial visit to Oregon last weekend, Fields made his final decision to join the Pacific Northwest team. Ranked as the 95th overall prospect in his class and the 13th cornerback for the class of 2024, Fields is highly regarded for his skills on the field.

In a conversation with On3, the incoming senior disclosed the reasons behind his commitment flip. This setback comes as a blow to USC’s 2024 recruiting class, which has been experiencing a decline in rankings week by week.

The loss of Dakoda Fields is undoubtedly a bummer for Trojan fans, and the USC coaching staff must now work to rebound from this setback. As they navigate the challenging landscape of recruiting, the Trojans need to regroup and attract other promising talents to strengthen their 2024 class. The competition for top prospects is fierce, but USC has a rich history of success, and their ability to bounce back remains a testament to their determination and resilience.
