It has been a nice week for the Southern California Trojans on the recruiting trail. On Sunday, they landed a commitment from a 4-Star prospect in the class of 2016, linebacker Daelin Hayes. On Monday, they picked up a commitment from a prospect in the class of 2015 when 3-Star running back Aca’Cedric Ware gave his pledge to the Trojans.
Ware named a final four of the Trojans, Iowa Hawkeyes, Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Ohio State Buckeyes. The Trojans offered Ware back in May and he camped with the Trojans over the weekend.
“I have an opportunity to be successful in life just by going to L.A.,” Ware said via E.J. Holland of The Dallas Morning News. “Los Angeles is like the city of dreams, and feel like all of the opportunities there off the field will give me a much better chance at being successful in life if football doesn’t work out for me.
“Me, my dad and Coach (Joey) McGuire talked about it. We all thought it was just better to get my decision out of the way, so I wouldn’t be stressed about it. I felt like USC was the place for me, so it’s great to know where I’m going.”
The 6’0, 196-pound Ware is an impressive get because he is from the state of Texas – he attends Cedar Hill High School in Cedar Hill, Texas. Ware is ranked as the country’s 41st-best running back prospect, the 73rd-best overall prospect in the state of Texas and the 566th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015 according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings. Ware rushed for 1,270 yards and 11 touchdowns on 142 attempts last season.
The Trojans now have 13 commitments in the class of 2015, headlined by 5-Star quarterback Ricky Town and 5-Star offensive tackle Chuma Edoga.
