Su’a Cravens, the No. 8 overall player in the Class of 2013, has pledged allegiance to Lane Kiffin and the USC Trojans, spurning Michigan and Nebraska, reports Scout.com. In Cravens, USC is getting the best two-way player in the country.
Most analysts feel the 6’1”, 205-pound, do-everything star from Murrieta, Calif. will end up playing safety in college. But he’s such a natural on offense that it will not be a surprise if Kiffin designs a few packages to get the ball in his hands. In fact, some scouts have told Cravens that he reminds them of former Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson.
247Sports' Barton Simmons joins Full Ride to discuss what the Cravens commitment means to USC and the absurdity of Kiffin's 2013 class. Who might be next for the Trojans? Watch to find out which other blue-chip recruits might be on their way to Troy.
Cravens posted tremendous stats as a junior, racking up 100 tackles, 11 sacks, three interceptions and four forced fumbles. On the offensive side of the ball, Cravens also excelled, rushing for 673 yards and 15 touchdowns while reeling in another 20 passes for 339 yards and four scores.
