Report: 5-star quarterback to visit USC in April

In his first year of high school, Julian Lewis led Carrolton (Ga.) to the 7A state championship game in Georgia

USC will have a high profile quarterback visitor this spring. 

Class of 2026 5-star quarterback Julian Lewis plans to visit USC on April 8th, according to Steve Wiltfong of The spring visit will be Lewis's second to USC after he was on campus in January.

“USC has a lot of football history of great quarterbacks,” Lewis told Wiltfong after the January trip. “Coach Riley is really cool. How he develops quarterbacks and what he’s done with the guys he’s coached is amazing."

In his first year of high school, Lewis led Carrolton (Ga.) to the 7A state championship game in Georgia. He threw for 4,118 yards and 48 touchdowns in 15 games. In addition to USC, Lewis has also been offered by the likes of Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State and Texas.

Since taking over as head coach at Oklahoma in 2017, Riley has coached three Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks in Kyler Murray, Baker Mayfield and Caleb Williams. As recent recruiting cycles show, Riley has almost exclusively targeted 5-star passers and Lewis certainly fits the bill.
