As USC looks to cap off its final season in the Pac-12 with a bang, Lincoln Riley and the Trojans’ staff are trying to put together another elite recruiting class.

With just 15 commitments and a slow finish to the summer, USC’s class is currently No. 18 in the nation, per to the On3 Industry Team Recruiting Ranking. Following what was a top-10 class in the 2023 cycle, the Trojans still have plenty of space on their 2024 pledge list to try and make a move up the rankings ahead of the December signing period.

The next commit for Riley and Co. appears to be on the horizon, according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine (RPM). Los Alamitos (Calif.) three-star cornerback Isaiah Rubin will announce his decision on Oct. 20, choosing between USC, Colorado, Oregon and Utah.

Multiple recruiting analysts and insiders have logged RPM selections in favor of Rubin’s pledge keeping him in the Golden State. USC has an overwhelming 98.3% chance to land his commitment.

Rubin was back at USC last weekend as the Trojans scraped by Arizona in a triple-overtime thriller. USC offered him in January and have had him on campus four times. Defensive backs coach Donte Williams is on point for USC’s recruitment of the CB.

“USC is very high in my recruitment. I feel great about USC,” Rubin told On3. “It feels like home and growing up a USC fan with my dad makes my interest even bigger. It is like a family at USC and they treat me like I am already part of the team. Family is a big thing for me in my recruitment.”

USC looking to add another DB pledge to the fold

If Rubin were to commit to USC, he would be the fifth defensive back in the Trojans’ 2024 class. Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco four-star CB Marcelles Williams is the No. 99 recruit in the cycle and one of three top-100 pledges for USC.

Other committed DBs include West Hills (Calif.) Sierra Canyon four-star safety Marquis Gallegos, Clearwater (Fla.) three-star safety Jarvis Boatwright Jr. and Humble (Texas) Atascocita three-star safety Braylon Conley.

At the top of the class, Williams is joined by Sierra Canyon four-star wide receiver Xavier Jordan and Clearwater (Fla.) Academy International four-star interior offensive lineman Jason Zandamela. Long Beach (Calif.) Millikan four-star WR Ryan Pellum, Atlanta Washington four-star EDGE Kameryn Fountain and Hiram (Ga.) four-star tight end Walter Matthews are all also top-200 pledges.
