Dallis Todd changed his name and reclassified to the 2014 class and he has seen his recruitment take off in recent months.
Many top national programs have offered the four-star wide receiver from La Mirada, Calif., but USC decided to hold off during its junior day this past weekend.
The message to Todd, which was the same to many prospects in attendance, was that the Trojans want to see him in summer camp.
Todd, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound recruit who used to go by the last name Shipp, said he's fine with it but also has many other programs to consider.
"It was good just talking to the coaches and we were going over film and stuff," Todd said. "They really like me.
"I did talk to coach (Lane) Kiffin but I was talking to the position coach mostly. They want to see me at a camp and then they'll get back to me after that.
"I'm open to anything but if they offered it would be exciting especially because it is a local school. I'm thinking about going to one of their camps."
So far, Todd has received offers from Arizona State, Florida, Iowa State, Louisville, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Ohio State, Tennessee, Texas A&M and others.
With so much going on, Todd said having the extra year definitely has aided in his recruitment and he's just trying to take his time to make sure the right decision is made.
"I'm just trying to stay focused," Todd said. "A lot of schools are calling me, a lot, so I'm just trying to stay focused.
"The extra year is making a big difference. I'm just getting a lot more exposure."
This past season, Todd finished with 72 receptions for 1,041 yards and 10 touchdowns.
