2014 DB Denzel Fisher Picks up USC Trojans Offer

UCLA 2014 DB Commit Gets USC Offer

Denzel Fisher has been one of the hardest working defensive back recruits on the West coast over the past year. Today, the UCLA commit Fisher hauled in another big-time offer.

Fisher received an offer from the USC Trojans today. Coach Tee Martin had been out to Compton Centennial twice this year and watched Fisher up close and personal against Serrano.

"It feels great. That was the school in my back yard and here they come with an offer. I worked hard for it," Fisher told CLA.

As a Los Angeles native, Fisher couldn't help but get excited about his latest offer.

"I feel that it's going to shake things up. I'm still 100% Bruin. The SC offer, that's big. You can't take that away," said Fisher.

Although he's still committed to UCLA, Fisher says he'll consider the offer.

"I'm just going to sit down with my family and we're going to have a big discussion about my plans and my goals," he said.

Denzel Fisher was virtually unknown in the recruiting world until he won the DB MVP at the Los Angeles NFTC earlier this year. Fisher went on to have a successful spring 7v7 circuit and also won the Defensive MVP at the 2013 LA Watts Summer Games.

Exposure helps. Fisher credits his rise in the recruiting ranks to putting himself on the map at various tournaments, showcases and camps.

"Going to all the camps, going to B2G and playing on the 5-star team… it showed people what I can do. Now that we're in pads, I'm still showing people what I can do," said Fisher.

So far this season the 2014 UCLA DB commit has one interception and admits that teams have avoided throwing the ball to his side of the field.

"They've only tested me one time and I picked it off. I have two pass breakups and at least 23 tackles this year. I'm playing receiver, kick return and punt return," he told CLA.

Fisher has also lined up at quarterback for Centennial this season, displaying versatility that is coveted by college programs.

USC is not the powerhouse of several years ago and the Trojans are currently in a rebuilding mode.

"They just tell me that SC is a program where they were high and went down low. They feel like they're going to come back up. They think I can help bring the program back up," says Fisher.

In regards to the UCLA staff, Fisher said that he received a congratulatory message from Coach Demetrice Martin on his USC offer.

The Bruins still look to be in the driver's seat, but only time will tell whether or not Fisher remains committed to Westwood.
