The recruiting world never stops, even when a top-flight prospect is firmly committed to an institution. That sentiment is on full display with four-star 2018 running back prospect Mychale Salahuddin, as the talented ball-carrier from Washington D.C. isn’t being shy about taking other official visits despite a verbal to USC.
Adam Friedman of Rivals brings word from the 5’10, 193-pound prospect, who is set to head to both Maryland and North Carolina in the coming days.
“I have three official visits that I’m planning. Maryland, North Carolina, and USC. I don’t have any dates yet I want to go to USC’s game against UCLA. They (USC) know that I’m still taking visits.”
Salahuddin made sure to note that USC was fully in the loop with regard to his travels and other conversations and he reiterated to Rivals that it isn’t as if he is wavering from the Trojans at this juncture.
“Everything is going perfectly with USC. It’s what I always wanted to do. Coach McCullough is my guy. He said I could come into his running back room and definitely make an impact from a leadership, academic and football standpoint. I’m trying to get Matt Corral to commit again. This recruiting class is going in an upward direction. We’ve got one of the top linebackers committed with us. The defense is looking good but I just need to get a dominant quarterback to come with me.
At the moment, Salahuddin ranks as the No. 4 all-purpose back in the country according to the 247Sports composite that backs up all of the interest in his recruitment. For now, though, it appears as if USC is still in the driver’s seat but the Trojans can’t be fully comfortable with Salahuddin (or any committed prospect) on another campus officially.
