The nation's top junior college defensive end gave USC's highly-ranked 2015 recruiting class another huge piece when he committed on Sunday morning.
South Carolina native Marquavius Lewis made his pledge at the conclusion of his weekend official visit to Columbia. He will return to the Palmetto State to play his college football.
"It was just everything," he said when asked why he decided on USC. "I just felt at home. It felt right."
According to the 6-foot-4, 270-pounder, his relationship with future defensive line coach Deke Adams was another important factor in the decision.
"I'm excited. He did a good job of keeping it real and just being that role model and throughout recruiting he's been consistent," Lewis explained.
Lewis, who will have two to play two at USC, is ready to get started in Columbia. He said that he is "pretty much done" with the recruiting process.
"I still have something to prove. I want to put on for my state. My friends and family are going to be here. It's going to be an amazing time."
