Five-star linebacker Porter Gustin committed to USC on Tuesday.

Gustin, the No. 1 inside linebacker in the country, is the No. 25 ranked player in the country out of Salem Hills in Utah, according to Rivals. He picked USC over Ohio State, Utah and Arizona State. He also had a hat for Division II Dixie State at his press conference because it was the first school to offer him a scholarship, according to Salem Hills coach Joel Higginson.

He played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl last month.
