Five-Star QB Malachi Nelson Commits to Lincoln Riley, USC

Well that didn’t take long. Just two days after he took the USC job, Lincoln Riley has scored a massive recruiting win for the Trojans. On Tuesday afternoon, five-star quarterback Malachi Nelson announced his commitment to USC.

The 6-foot-3 Nelson is the No. 2 quarterback prospect and No. 2 overall player in the 2023 recruiting class, sitting only behind Arch Manning. He had been committed to Oklahoma but backed off that pledge on Sunday when news of Riley’s departure became public.

This is a huge example of the sea-change Riley will bring to the Trojans. Nelson plays at Los Alamitos High School, which is about 25 miles from USC’s campus. He’s the kind of player the program has been losing to out-of-state powers for years because of weak coaching.
