Five-star cornerback Domani Jackson focused on USC on Friday. The No. 6 prospect picked the Trojans over Alabama in coach Lincoln Riley’s greatest get of the 2022 class.
Jackson is a 6-foot-1, 190-pound defensive back from Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California, who had been focused on USC once before in his recruitment however decommitted on Nov. 14.
Jackson didn’t decommit immediately after USC fired Clay Helton, needing to stand by to see who the Trojans would recruit as head coach. He took visits to Alabama and Michigan, however, and decided to open up his recruitment before a new head coach was hired.
It appeared to be like the skilled corner planned to pick Alabama, however, Riley and his staff had the option to get Jackson back on campus at USC and persuaded him to remain at home.
Jackson is the highest-ranked commitment in the 2022 class for the Trojans, and he is one of three ESPN 300 enlisted people to focus on Riley at USC. Running back Raleek Brown, the No. 6 back in the country, committed shortly after Riley was recruited, and security Zion Branch submitted on Wednesday.
USC presently has eight complete responsibilities in the 2022 class, and keeping in mind that there wasn’t sufficient time in this cycle for Riley to turn the class around, he and his staff have effectively gotten an early advantage in the 2023 class.
Riley flipped ESPN Junior 300 quarterback Malachi Nelson from Oklahoma on Nov. 30, as well as Nelson’s colleague, wide receiver Makai Lemon, on Dec. 3. Nelson is the No. 3 prospect overall in the 2023 cycle and the No. 2 quarterback behind Arch Manning.
