USC won't have to worry about the word of LB Daniel Fennell of Loganville, GA. He said Sunday night his commitment, made earlier this month, will stand.
Fennell was scheduled to visit Georgia Tech over the weekend but he canceled that visit and is 100% with USC. "Later on I thought about it and thought that I don't need to take that visit," he said. "I'm really sure on South Carolina."
He met with USC recruiter GA Mangus and linebackers coach Kirk Botkin earlier in the week and they apparently calmed any fears he may have had about possible coaching changes.
"I feel real good about the defensive staff," Fennell said. "I talked to coach Botkin a lot about playing. He seems like a guy I can relate to."
Fennell is one of four linebackers in USC's 2015 class.
