USC Trojans in the Race for Top Recruit Jaylen Harvey

USC Football Program Competing for Star Edge Rusher in 2024 Class

The USC Trojans, renowned for their football program, continue to stand out in the world of college football recruiting. As the pursuit of top talents in the 2024 class intensifies, some recruits have already made their choices, while others remain undecided.

Among the Trojans’ coveted prospects is Jaylen Harvey, a four-star edge rusher hailing from Maryland. In recent months, USC has made significant strides in Harvey’s considerations, positioning themselves close to the top of his list. While Harvey has narrowed down his choices to three schools, USC remains firmly in the mix. Despite his prolonged deliberation, we’ll soon discover where Harvey intends to showcase his talents.

As the decision date looms, the odds may not heavily favor the Trojans, but the fact that they are part of Harvey’s final trio of options is a significant achievement. Alongside USC, Penn State and Maryland are also vying for his commitment. Harvey, a senior edge rusher, had the opportunity to experience USC firsthand during their season opener against San Jose State, and all signs point to an enjoyable visit.

Last week Harvey thought he could potentially announce a school choice by the end of September, but told us it’ll now likely happen in October.

While Harvey has ample time to mull over his decision, no precise announcement date has been set. It could be as early as nine days from now, on October 1st, or as late as 39 days, on October 31st. The exact timing remains uncertain, leaving fans and analysts eagerly awaiting Harvey’s choice.

“My interest in USC was already there, but when I went up there, I felt like I was home,” said Harvey about the USC official visit. “I felt like I could be myself up there around the coaches and players. Out of all my official visits, USC was No. 1.

“The people out there in Cali are calm, cool, collected and keep to themselves. That’s the kind of person I am.”
