Five-star cornerback Olaijah Griffin, the son of West Coast rap legend Warren G (and step-nephew of Dr. Dre), is keeping it in the 213. The No. 3 cornerback and No. 28 player overall committed to USC on National Signing Day, becoming the Trojans' fourth-five star commit for the class of 2018. Griffin picked the Trojans, who signed coach Clay Helton to a contract extension through 2023 on Tuesday, over Tennessee, Alabama and Oregon. 

His commitment came with plenty of star power—Warren G was in attendance, as was fellow 213 member Snoop Dogg and USC alum/Super Bowl champion Willie McGinest.

• Clay Helton told Griffin to throw up two fingers if he feels the same way—Clay puttin it down for Californ-i-a
