Anaheim (Calif.) Servite linebacker Chris Galippo ended the recruiting process before it even got started when he pledged to the USC Trojans back on February 1.
The commitment was a monster one for the Trojans because Galippo is widely considered one of the nation's top overall players and a serious candidate for five-star status.
Now that some time has passed since the commitment, Galippo said other teams haven't stopped in their pursuit to land the 6-foot-3, 235-pound inside linebacker.

"I just talked to coach Dorrell at UCLA on the phone, and he said they're really close to offering me," Galippo said. "I've talked to Charlie Weis at Notre Dame four or five times. It's freaky how hard Notre Dame is recruiting me.
"I've also gotten offers from Arizona State, Ole Miss, Boston College and a few others."
But Galippo said the decision to pick the Trojans was the right one.
"It's made things pretty calm around here, even though everybody is still trying to recruit me," he said. "My coach (Troy Thomas) said if I hadn't of committed early then I would probably have about 50 offers now. I don't know what it would be like to have all that.
"It would probably be a lot to handle. I'm pleased with my pick, and I'm happy with the decision. This way I don't have to worry about too much and can stay focused on my senior season."
But it's clear that other teams aren't going to stop recruiting him.
