Zach Banner Raves About USC, Will Announce Decision In Mid-January

Zach Banner is a boisterous and confident young individual, and is one of many offensive tackles expected to make a big impact from this class in the Pac-12 over the next five years. So it's not a surprise that the Lakewood product would want to confirm his decision in the most public setting possible. Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that Banner told the Dawgman.com show on KJR-AM tonight that he will announce in a press conference at his high school where he will be playing college football in mid-January.

Banner is close to making a top 5, and he has left some nice clues as to who is in the lead for his services. Greg Biggins of ESPN has more (the article is paid, but this portion pasted is free).

A recent unofficial visit to USC has the Trojans a lock to make his final five.

"That's the one school I know for sure that will make it in there," Banner said. "My visit last week was incredible and I really had a good time. It's such a nice place and I had to chance to meet a lot of people. I met up with the entire football staff and also talked with the basketball coaches and they said I could for sure play both sports so that was good to hear.

Playing both sports is a big thing for Banner, and it seems USC is one of the schools most recipient to Banner playing football and basketball. It has to make Washington Huskies fans worry about whether they have the inside edge at landing one of their best home state products.
