Warner breaks down USC trip
Troy Warner was offered by USC last week and he took his official visit this weekend as the four-star defensive back figures out the next step in his recruitment.
The San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills standout remains committed to BYU after his USC trip but the Trojans have intrigued him and Warner will really have to finalize things within the next few weeks since he's an early enrollee.
One issue Warner will have to figure out is that BYU has not named a new coach after Bronco Mendenhall left for Virginia but USC doesn't have a defensive backs coach at this time.
It will be something Warner will watch closely.
"They told me they believe USC is a good fit for me but I had to decide whether it was the right fit for me as well," Warner said.
"Right now I'm just trying to find the right fit. I'm waiting to see what coaches are hired because I want to be comfortable where I go.
"I'm still committed to BYU. I'll see how it plays out within the next couple weeks."
His trip to USC went well.
Warner, rated as the No. 23 cornerback in the 2016 class, knows a lot of players on the team especially from the 7on7 circuit.
The four-star spent a lot of time with his host Marvell Tell along with receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Warner got an excellent feel for what it would be like if he decides on USC.
"It was fun," Warner said. "USC was everything I expected and more. Academically, they're very prestigious as well as the athletics there."
