Five-star Rasheem Green and four-star John Houston, Jr. sign with USC

first_imgIn the program’s first recruiting class since NCAA sanctions officially ended, head coach Steve Sarkisian has already produced what is considered to be one of the best classes in Trojans history. Green’s teammate, the 6-foot-3, 211-pound Houston, chose the Trojans over Miami, Oklahoma, Oregon and Arizona State. He was slated as the sixth best linebacker in the country by 247Sports and finished his three-year career at Serra with 413 tackles.  Marshall, out of local powerhouse Long Beach Poly, is expected to make his decision at 1 p.m. PST.  Should the Trojans land Marshall, USC’s 2015 class, which is currently ranked No. 2 behind Alabama by Rivals.com, could make a push for the land’s No.1-ranked recruiting class.  USC landed two more big commitments on 2015 National Signing Day when five-star defensive lineman Rasheem Green and four-star linebacker John Houston, Jr. signed with the Trojans on Wednesday. center_img Green, the No.23 national recruit according to 247Sports, chose USC over Miami and Pac-12 rivals Arizona State and Oregon.  The 2015 Under Armour All-America participant was also recruited by Martin. With the commitments of both Green and Houston now finalized, the Trojans are now only waiting on the decision of the nation’s best cornerback, in five-star recruit Iman Marshall.  The 6-foot-5, 275-pound defensive tackle  recorded 47 tackles and 20 sacks during his last two seasons at Junipero Serra High School in Gardena, California, a widely known feeder-school for USC talent.
