"My trip to USC was good," Shirley said. "I was mostly with the coaches and meeting them. Seeing what they are all about and talk to Coach O (Ed Orgeron).
"The new coaching staff at USC are down to earth," Shirley said. "I like Coach O and how he operates and with coaches Lane Kiffin and Monte Kiffin, you can't get any better. USC wants me to play Will.
