During what has quickly become the premiere event for the elite high school football prospects to show case their skills and often make a decision on what school they will be attending.
Tuesday night was no different as several highly-touted prospects announced their decisions. Perhaps the best prospect to let their college destination be known Tuesday was 4-star wide received/defensive back Isaiah Langley, who gave his pledge to Southern Cal Trojans.
“It (USC) was my childhood favorite for such a long time,” Langley said via Justin Hopkins of 24/7 Sports. “I just fell in love with the campus and every time I went back it just kept getting better and better every time. I really like coach Sark (Steve Sarkisian) but coach (Clay) Helton has been there since I first went down and that was big. I feel like I have the best connection with him out of all of the coaches I talked with.”
Langley was offered by the Trojans back in February and immediately knew where he wanted to be.
“Pretty much when USC offered, I knew that one would probably be it. I kept going back to Cal to see if I had any doubts, I went to Oregon, UCLA and others but I just knew it was USC. It’s been USC on top for a while and everyone else trying to beat them out for me. I kept it to myself so I could make a clear-headed decision.”
The 5’11, 170-pounder attends Foothill High School in Pleasanton, California. He is ranked as the country’s seventh-best cornerback prospect, the 12th-best overall prospect in the state of California and the 86th-best overall prospect in the class of 2014, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Langley, who projects as a defensive back with the Trojans, had an impressive list of offers, including the Florida State Seminoles, Georgia Bulldogs, Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Oregon Ducks, among others.
