Los Angeles (Calif.) Jordan defensive end James Boyd won't have to go far to play his college football, committing to the hometown USC Trojans on Thursday...

Los Angeles (Calif.) Jordan defensive end James Boyd turned an excellent camp at USC into an offer from the Trojans.

And he turned that offer into a commitment.

"Walking into the Coliseum, walking down the stairs, and then on the field, I visualized myself on that field," said Boyd. "When they offered me, I accepted it on the spot."

Boyd, who plays quarterback and defensive end, said the Trojan staff likes him as an athlete.

"They offered me as an athlete really, but it will probably be as a defensive end or as a SAM linebacker," said Boyd.

When Pete Carroll offered, Boyd told him he was taking it.

"Coach (Pete) Carroll was real excited, and Coach (Ken) Norton was really happy," said Boyd.

And Boyd won't have to go far, getting to stay in Los Angeles for his college career.

"I'm sure my family is going to be happy," said Boyd.

Boyd said he plans to still keep an eye on some schools.

"I'm going to still take some visits," said Boyd. "But I'm committed."

With the USC camp under his belt, he's got one more this weekend.

"I'm headed to B2G tomorrow," said Boyd.
