On the USC front, the program began recruiting him as far back as last year, offering him a scholarship during an unofficial visit on April 5, 2014. Four days later, he visited campus again, reaffirming his interest in the school. June 5 of this year, he announced his Top 10 programs and USC was in the mix before ending his recruitment on Friday, calling Los Angeles home.

With this commitment, the Trojans boast a ’16 class that ranks No. 5 in the country and is No. 1 in the Pac-12 per the 247Sports team rankings. Sidney is the third wideout in the class joining Josh Imatorbhebhe and Velus Jones Jr.

The 2016 recruiting class promises to be a very special one for the Trojans and it will be fun to see how all these parts will come together as USC tries to reach the pinnacle of the Pac-12.
