Toa Lobendahn is still being heavily pursued by Stanford and Oregon has also stepped it up but the 2014 prospect from Lakewood, Calif., does not think anything will change in his recruitment.
The 6-foot-4, 270-pound four-star offensive tackle has been committed to USC since June and he doesn't foresee anything changing that pledge.
"I'm pretty 100 percent on it," Lobendahn said. "Right now my plan is to get out early and get over there after my senior season. I'm 100 percent on my commitment.
"Stanford and then Oregon has been pretty hard lately. I've been talking to the o-line coach. I might take some visits but right now I'm pretty much sticking with SC."
Lobendahn is not quite sure which schools have offered since pretty much the entire Pac-12 along with some SEC schools have reached out but he's seen a hesitancy toward outright offering him.
He thinks since he's committed to USC a lot of programs don't want to extend an offer and then he sticks with the Trojans those teams look like they lost out in his recruitment.
The interest has been coming in furiously but Lobendahn is not sure which programs have actually offered yet.
Since the Lakewood standout is planning to stick with the Trojans, the 2014 recruit isn't too concerned about it right now.
"Basically the whole Pac-12 except for Colorado is showing interest in me," Lobendahn said. "Oregon has been talking to me a lot, Stanford of course and Ole Miss from the SEC is showing interest. I recently started to get interest from Arkansas, too.
"I don't know if you could consider it an offer from some schools because I'm not sure. I was at Cal, at one of their camps, they told me something and when I committed they said they offered me but they didn't say it. I'm not worried though because I think I'm going to SC."
