Top in-state talent to USC junior day

A group of top in-state prospects are scheduled to converge on USC Sunday for the Trojans’ junior day.

The USC staff will have an opportunity to make a positive impression on the likes of Adoree’ Jackson (Gardena, Calif./Serra), Joe Mixon (Oakley, Calif./Freedom), Ainuu Taua (Lompoc, Calif./Lompoc), John “JuJu” Smith (Long Beach, Calif./Poly), Bryce Dixon (Ventura, Calif./St. Bonaventure), Michiah Quick (Fresno, Calif./Central) and Dwight Williams (Gardena, Calif./Serra), though there was a mix up earlier in the week. Jackson, the highly coveted athlete who bagged a USC offer in late January, had not heard from the coaching staff about junior day and, as a result, did not plan to attend. But he and Williams finally received a call from Lane Kiffin on Wednesday and both expected to make the short drive to campus.
