USC earns commitment from 2023 offensive tackle with major size
The Trojans 2023 class landed its first offensive lineman on Monday, and he’s quite the athlete.
Tobias Raymond, a 6-foot-7, 260-pound offensive tackle prospect from Ventura (Calif.) announced on social media his commitment to USC. The 3-star lineman is USC’s eighth known pledge for the 2023 class.

Raymond was in town this past weekend on an official visit. He chose the Trojans over interest from a handful of major programs from the region, including four other Pac-12 schools—Cal, Oregon State, Arizona, and Washington State.
A 3-star by 247Sports’ evaluation, Raymond ranks as the 67th tackle in the class and the 88th prospect from the state California. He plays with some nastiness to him, getting on his man and not letting up until his defender is on the turf.
At 6-foot-7 with a frame that should add weight well, Raymond has good size to play the tackle spot at the major college level with the athleticism to work in USC coach Lincoln Riley’s scheme. He’ll need to spend some time in the USC weight room, but Raymond has good upside.
