Maybe more than any other prospect, Austin Joyner knows this new USC coaching staff well since he was committed to them at Washington.
The 2015 running back from Marysville (Wash.) Marysville-Pilchuck took an unofficial visit this past weekend to USC and said it was definitely different to see all the old Washington coaches in a new environment.
"It went well," Joyner said. "It was really nice. The school and all that stuff was really impressive. It looks like it's new almost but it's not.

"It was kind of weird seeing them there. They're still getting used to it, too."
So far, Joyner has been offered by Washington, Washington State and Oregon State.
The 5-foot-11, 186-pound four-star prospect said the USC coaches didn't discuss an offer during his trip but he plans to take things slowly especially after backing off his Washington pledge.
"There were a lot of conversations," Joyner said. "There were only about 25 kids there so there was a lot of one-on-one time with the coaches.
"They didn't really say anything about an offer so I don't know at this point. I'm just stepping back from it. I'm not making any decisions or leaning toward anybody. It's wide open for me."
Joyner, rated as the fourth-best prospect in the Washington state rankings by Rivals.com, said he's receiving new interest from Arizona State and Colorado.
