USC recruiter GA Mangus has put USC in contention with some of the top players in New Jersey including DB Sheldon Royster (5-11 190) of Jersey City. Royster plans to visit USC this week.
Royster has visited Rutgers several times and is high on the homestate Scarlet Knights, the first to offer him. He also plans to visit Michigan.
He also has offers from Illinois, Louisville, Syracuse, West Virginia, Pitt, Miam, Connecticut and Penn State.
Royster is considered a safety prospect but also plays running back and receiver.
