Jonathan Lockett has had a busy week - being committed to Washington and then reopening his recruitment, landing an offer from USC and then finally making his pledge on Wednesday evening.
The Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei four-star cornerback who has played especially well during the playoffs committed to the Trojans and new coach Steve Sarkisian, who was previously at Washington before taking the USC job.
"It's close to home and it's always been my dream school and I have great relationships with the coaches," Lockett said.
Sarkisian was a big factor for Lockett but so was new assistant coach Keith Heyward, who had recruited the four-star to Washington.
Heyward was a major reason why Lockett flipped but his love for the Trojans basically his entire life influenced him as well.
"I chose USC because I've always liked them," Lockett told USCFootball.com. "I like the campus and the facilities. I grew up around USC and I've liked them since I was little."
Rivals.com rates Lockett as the No. 16 cornerback and the No. 197 prospect in the 2014 class. He becomes the seventh four-star prospect in the recruiting class.
It's another big hit for Washington, which has dealt with some difficult times since Sarkisian left town for USC.
Lockett and four-star wide receivers Rahshead Johnson and Erik Brown have all recently de-committed. Johnson said earlier Wednesday that USC might be close to offering and it's expected he would pledge to the Trojans soon as well.
Washington currently has the lowest-rated class in the Pac-12 by Rivals.com with only one four-star commitment remaining.
