On the defensive side, Lincoln Riley's program earned commitments from a pair of four-stars, EDGE Kameryn Foutnain and four-star corner Dakoda Fields who committed to USC over offers from Alabama, Oregon, Miami, Washington and Colorado and many others.
Four-star offensive tackle Manasse Itete, a Modesto, Calif., native, was the third commitment of the day for USC, he commits to USC over offers from Florida State, Washington and Utah.
USC currently has the No. 22 ranked class in the country, which includes eight total commits. The 2024 class is the first that will play as freshmen in the Big Ten, and the Trojans currently have the seventh highest-ranked class in the Big Ten.
SPENCER COMMITS TO UCONN
Former Rutgers guard Cam Spencer committed to UConn late on Tuesday night, according to Stadium/the Field of 68's Jeff Goodman. Spencer was one of the most sought-after players still in the transfer portal and helps solidify a UConn rotation that osses key contributors like Jordan Hawkins to the NBA Draft.
Spencer averaged 13.2 points last season for Rutgers before surprisingly entering the transfer portal on the last day it remained open. He'll be in his fifth season of college basketball next year and is a career 40.5 percent shooter from the perimeter.
