Roy Hemsley earned rave reviews at the Army National Combine and his recruitment just picked up in a big way.
The 2015 offensive tackle from Los Angeles (Calif.) Windward landed an offer from USC on Saturday when he was one of a select few juniors to visit the school and meet the new coaching staff.
"It went well," Hemsley said. "I just toured around the campus and got a really good feel for the facilities and the coaching staff and their coaching style.
"They're all down-to-earth, they're all good guys. They all have pro experience which is good and I know I'll be able to be the best player I can possibly be there.
"I had an idea about the offer but I was still very surprised."
The 6-foot-7, 270-pound offensive tackle now has offers from San Diego State and USC. More interest has flowed in recently from Vanderbilt, Cal, UCLA, Washington and Washington State.
It's still early for the Los Angeles Windward standout but Hemsley said USC is definitely a frontrunner at this point.
"Toward the end of the day, coach (Steve) Sarkisian came up to me and told me I was offered," Hemsley said. "He said he had nothing to say but good things about me.
"It's definitely a favorite. They've had a great football program for so long and they've had so many exceptional players. I really like the campus and then the ability to stay in Los Angeles is a plus.
"I'd rather wait until the summer or next fall of my senior year to commit."
