Roy Hemsley did not stay the whole time at USC's spring game this past weekend but he got a chance to see the teams, see the coaches and see that the Trojans might be the best fit for him.
The Los Angeles (Calif.) Windward three-star offensive tackle does not have a particular favorite yet but Hemsley said he had a good time at USC - although it was short - and talked with offensive line coach Tim Drevno.
"It was good," Hemsley said. "I only stayed for the first half. It was fun. It was kind of sunny and I'm not all that into day games, I try to go to the evening things, but it was fun. I had a good time.

"I talked to coach Drevno a little bit and that was it for the most part. I also met some of the 2014 recruits so that was good.
"(Drevno) said he was excited for the day and that he couldn't wait for me to become a Trojan. "
Hemsley, who had a strong showing at the Army National Combine but has not done much else because of basketball season, said he likes the USC coaching staff a lot. He's gotten to see them this spring and is impressed with their transition from Washington.
The three-star is not ready to commit anywhere yet though.
"I'm not entirely sure what I'd like to do so I'm still waiting and seeing how things go before I make any decisions," Hemsley said.
"They're a great staff. I know they're a cohesive unit and they all know each other really well. They should be really good this year so I'm looking forward to observing them and going to a lot of their games."
Hemsley also stopped by UCLA last Thursday. He had similar feelings about the Bruins, who are also considered highly in his recruitment.
"It went well," Hemsley said. "I also met a bunch of top recruits and most of them were in my grade so that was pretty cool. Their practice was pretty intense so I was seeing how I'd adjust from high school to college. I had a good time there as well."
The Windward standout has now been offered by Arizona State, Miami, San Diego State, UCLA, USC and Washington.
