The USC Trojans have a long and storied history of cranking out talented offensive linemen. Could 4-star recruit Penei Sewell of St. George, Utah be next?
According to Scout.com there’s a chance.
Sewell, who has already made visits to Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Alabama, is slated to make his fifth and final visit to USC for the Nov. 18 game against UCLA which is interesting because the Bruins were reportedly the first school make an offer to the 6-foot-5, 340-pounder, who is ranked fourth among all offensive tackles in the nation in the 2018 class according to Rivals.com.
Trying to guess what a young recruit is ultimately going to do is always tricky of course. Sewell’s most recent twitter activity includes a re-tweet related to Alabama recruiting….
@CoachLup is no doubt one of the best recruiters in the country.

It's hard to say no…

However, given USC’s rich tradition. recent on-field success and that southern California weather, maybe he can be persuaded? All the coaching staff has to do is show him the names and accomplishments of former Trojan greats like Ron Yary, Ron Mix, Anthony Munoz, Bruce Matthews, Tony Boselli, Tyron Smith and Ryan and Matt Kalil.
