USC Football Recruiting

Chris Steele shares why he committed to USC

USC had just defeated Oregon St. 38-10 and us media hacks were waiting in the Coliseum tunnel outside the Trojans' lockeroom to be let in for the post-game presser. There were a number of recruits at the game and they were fleeing past us on their way to the parking lots.

Chris Steele was among that group and approached me and said he had some big news. We're not permitted to talk to the recruits while on campus or at The Coliseum, so I told him I couldn't talk.

I shot him a text a few minutes later and he informed me he was ready to commit to USC. We knew that was the direction Steele was headed, but somewhat surprised he was ready that early in the process. We were still trying to figure out who the Trojans would sign for 2018.

The following Monday we ventured out to St. John Bosco and shot the video below. I never showed the video to anyone and kept it tucked inside my iPhone7 since October 9, 2017.

Scott this is awesome man - its so clear that you really care about these kids. You had a major breaking story and managed to keep it a secret so you could give Chris the opportunity to have his big moment on his terms. Not too often do journalists act with such honorable intentions! FIGHT ON!
