Hobbi Talks Recruitment
There is a lot of pressure in recruiting to make commitments; calls from coaches, media, etc, typically lead to prospects making early verbal pledges. It has become more and more uncommon for players to take all five official visits, but that is exactly what four-star offensive guard Cyrus Hobbi intends to do.The Scottsdale (Az.) Saguaro product has visited Oregon State, Nebraska Arizona State and most recently USC. He talks to Scout.com about his visit to LA."I really enjoyed my visit to SC," he says."Before I went in, me and the coaches kind of got off to a bad start, but they made up for it this past weekend."Hobbi is referring to attending the USC camp this summer but not walking away with an offer over an apparent miscommunication."I had a good meeting with Coach Kiffin," Hobbi says. "We just talk about the school's future and my future and none of the coaches pressured me at all but just kept telling me how important I am to them."He continues, "I enjoyed everything, just meeting the players and hanging out with my host, Matt Kalil and his roomate Chris Galippo."After last year's sanctions against USC, some prospects have looked elsewhere but they don't seem to effect Hobbi. "The sanctions don't really bother me too much," he says.Hobbi quickly became one of the West Coast's top offensive line prospect, receiving over twenty scholarship offers but now says he is down to three schools."I've narrowed it down to ASU, USC, and UCLA, in no order." he says. And he will take his last official visit to UCLA this weekend."I can definitely see myself at USC along ASU and UCLA, so its a lot harder for me now decision wise but I will make my decision next week," Hobbi finishes.Stay tuned with Scout.com for more and Hobbi's recruitment.
