New USC running backs coach Anthony Jones Jr. is one-for-one on the recruiting trail as the Trojans landed a commitment from three-star back Riley Wormley on Sunday, following an unofficial visit. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Wormley was the first running back to receive an offer from Jones following his move from TCU to USC.

Wormley is another Texas-based running back to commit to USC. The Southlake Carroll standout rushed for 901 yards and 19 touchdowns on just 85 carries during his 2023 junior season. He also caught nine passes for 123 yards. He’s ranked as the No. 396 overall prospect and No. 32 running back in the 2025 On3 Industry Rankings. And Wormley holds an impressive offer sheet, including ones from Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas.

He’s scheduled to join a running back room in 2025 that will feature plenty of Texas talent. USC’s Quinten Joyner and A’Marion Peterson both signed in the 2023 class and the Trojans landed Bryan Jackson out of Texas in the 2024 class.

Wormley adds to a 2025 class for the Trojans that ranks as the No. 3 class nationally. He’s just the second recruit on the offensive side of the ball to commit, joining five-star quarterback Julian “JuJu” Lewis.

Also committed to USC in the 2025 class is five-star defensive lineman Justus Terry, four-star edge Isaiah Gibson, four-star safety Hylton “Drake” Stubbs and three-star defensive end Gus Cordova.
