BREAKING: Lake Travis (TX) TE Lake McRee Commits to USC!

June 4, 2020

The busy recruiting week continues for USC as the staff just added another offensive weapon in Lake Travis Tight End Lake McRee. McRee received a USC offer after competing at the Trojans’ camp last summer, a visit that stood out to him.

“The coaches really took time out of their day to take me and my family on a personal tour and that really stood out to me. They make you feel like you’re more than a recruit and more like family,”McRee said.

After de-committing from Texas a few months ago, USC emerged again as a serious option for McRee and the staff delivered the same hospitality he experienced the previous summer. “I just felt like the coaches there give me the best hospitality and that was one of the few schools I was fortunate enough to visit last summer so that definitely helped. I’ve had a few of the committed guys in the class also reach out to me and pretty much make me feel like a priority,”McRee said. “Coach Helton would always call me and text me and make sure my family is ok. He would really make me feel like family and like I’m already part of the team. It was more than just a recruiting thing.”

There have been staff changes at USC since McRee visited, one of which has been promoting John David Baker, one of McRee’s primary recruiters, as the Tight Ends Coach. “You can’t make your decision just off coaches but you’re definitely not going to go somewhere where you don’t like the coach. Coach Baker definitely played a big role in why I went there and I think it really trending up just as a program and I think it’s going to be a really special place.”

McRee’s commitment is the latest testament to the Trojans’ strong push to recruiting in Texas. McRee is the 3rd Lone Star native to commit to USC, joining 4-star WR Quay Davis and 4-Star RB Brandon Campbell, who McRee mentioned as a friend and an active recruiter for him in the process as well.
