Watch List LB Scott Starr commits to USC 

May, 31, 2011
They say good things happen to those who wait and for Watch List linebacker Scott Starr (Norco, Calif.) that proved to be the case. The lifelong USC fan picked up the offer he had been dreaming about and wasted little time in jumping on it.

"I'll never forget this Memorial Day," Starr said. "I was sitting back relaxing with my family when my high school coach texted me and told me I needed to call Lane Kiffin. I had never really had a full on conversation with Coach Kiffin before, mainly just small talk type stuff. He broke things down for me and told me I had a scholarship offer and they had no questions about my ability to play linebacker for them.

"I was really excited but wasn't ready to commit right away. I told Coach that I wanted to take some time before making any decisions and he was fine with that. I hung up the phone and talked things over with my family and asked what they thought. They said they were fine with whatever I wanted to do and I said I wanted to be a Trojan.
