CJ Pollard has made it blatantly clear that if USC offers him then his recruitment could end early.
The 2016 defensive back from Gardena (Calif.) Serra said the Trojans have always been the favorite for many reasons including that his father, Marvin, played for them and that he's grown up watching the team and dreaming about playing for the program.
Pollard, a 6-foot, 167-pound defensive back who looked good this past week at the B2G Elite Camp, will camp at USC next week. It might be early to land an offer from the Trojans but they're definitely the favorite early in his recruitment.
"I'm still waiting," Pollard said. "USC is still up there though. I have to keep them up there.
"Pretty much it would end things. That's just the place. I've always liked them watching Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush and all those guys."
USC has not offered yet but Pollard is receiving plenty of early interest. So far, Utah and Wisconsin have offered and plenty of others programs have gotten involved through spring practice.
The 2016 prospect has camped with Washington State, Fresno State and San Diego State so far and he's planning stops at USC and UCLA soon. San Jose State could be really close to offering as well and others could come as his junior season gets underway.
But Pollard has made it clear that the Trojans are the team to beat. If an offer comes, the Serra prospect might have an early decision to make.
"USC has been heavier," Pollard said. "That's basically it pretty much."
