In one of the worst kept secrets of the day, Lakewood (Calif.) linebacker Luthur Brown announced moments ago at a school assembly that he's going to USC.
Brown, 6-2, 225 pounds took visits to USC, Arizona and Oklahoma before narrowing his choices to the two Pac 10 schools.
"USC was just the best fit for me," Brown said. "It was tough though, I really didn't know until a few days ago. When I looked at everything, there were just too many pluses with USC.
"They're a great school football wise, I love the coaching staff, it's close to home and I'm just ready to get in there and compete. They have some other good players there but I'm not afraid to compete, that will just make me a better player."
