Michael Hutchings, a linebacker from Concord De La Salle High, tweeted Wednesday morning that he had sent his letter of intent to USC.

"Glad to be able to say I am OFFICIALLY A USC TROJAN!" read Hutchings' post. "Ready to start the journey. Thank you to my family friends and coaches."

USC has been waiting for some good news after a wave of players who had made oral commitments to the Trojans reopened their recruitment.
