Casey Tucker thought he would have a good visit to USC this weekend but it went even better than expected for the 2014 offensive tackle from Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton.
Things went so well that Tucker was offered and said the Trojans have moved to the top of his list.
"As I went on my visit I thought it was going to be a pretty good visit but it was actually way better," Tucker said.

"It was a super good visit and I feel really good about that school. When I heard they offered me I was really excited about it."
Tucker, who shined at the recent Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge in Atlanta, said during a meeting with coach Lane Kiffin and offensive line coach James Cregg he received his offer and it came as a big surprise.
After getting the offer, Tucker said he has a lot of thinking to do and that a commitment might not be out of the question.
"They were both sitting down with me in their office and they were talking to me," Tucker said.
"He just said I wouldn't be down there if they weren't going to offer me. It was awesome. It was a great visit for me and I like everything about the program. It's definitely my No. 1 school.
"I've always kind of took the mindset to wait until signing day but there are some really good things about USC. It's definitely something I'm thinking about right now and I feel really good about it."
Other than his offer from USC, the 6-foot-5, 270-pound prospect also has offers from Arizona State, Boise State, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon State and Washington.
