LOS ANGELES — USC bolstered both the present and future of its defensive back room on Sunday with commitments from the Fegans brothers.
First, it was Alabama transfer Tre’Quon Fegans announcing his commitment to the Trojans. Not long afterwards, his younger brother Anquon Fegans, a top prospect in the class of 2025, announced that he will also be coming to USC.
A four-star recruit in the class of 2022, Tre’Quon Fegans signed with Alabama out of high school. After redshirting this past season with the Crimson Tide, he entered the NCAA Transfer Portal earlier this offseason. Fegans will come to USC with four years of eligibility remaining.
His younger brother, Anquon, is a top-20 recruit in the class of 2025 On3 Consensus rankings. This fall, he will play his junior season at Thompson High School in Alabaster, Alabama.
“Can’t wait to play with my brother!” Anquon said in a social media post announcing his commitment.
USC’s defensive back outlook for 2023
While Anquon will not arrive on campus until 2025, the elder Fegans brother will join the Trojans this fall. Competing for playing time will be no easy task, however, as defensive backs coach Donte Williams has put together a deep room with plenty of talent.
USC’s safeties are led by All-American Calen Bullock. The Trojans also return significant contributors Max Williams and Bryson Shaw at the position, and get former blue-chip recruit Zion Branch back from an injury that forced him to redshirt his first season on campus.
As for cornerbacks, USC brought in Arizona transfer Christian Roland-Wallace with the hope that he can replace All-Pac 12 honoree Mekhi Blackmon, who was recently selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the third round of the NFL Draft. The Trojans also bring back Ceyair Wright and Domani Jackson, two talented players who will have another year of college experience under their belts.
