USC went through spring ball with just two healthy scholarship quarterbacks. Put Caleb Williams atop the depth chart in permanent ink, but behind him the Trojans had only second-year man Miller Moss. If something were to happen to one quarterback, the Trojans would be in quite the pickle.

Adding depth to that room was a must for head coach Lincoln Riley and his USC staff exiting spring ball, and on Friday the Trojans did just that.

Jake Jensen, a 6-foot-2 quarterback from San Pablo (Calif.) Contra Costa College, announced on social media he has committed to USC.

Jensen originally committed to BYU after a standout prep career at Pleasant Grove in Utah as part of the 2019 Class. Prior to enrolling, he went on an LDS mission to Argentina with a plan to stay two years and then enroll with the Cougars in 2021, according to 247Sports’ Greg Biggins.

But the COVID-19 pandemic changed everything, forcing him home a year early and leaving him without a spot. He ended up at Contra Costa College. In 10 games as a freshman last season, he threw for 1,970 yards and 22 touchdowns against nine interceptions while completing 57.8% of his passes. He also added four rushing scores while leading the team to a 9-1 record.

Jensen committed to New Mexico two weeks ago shortly after the Lobos offered a scholarship. Then, according to Biggins, USC invited him out on an official visit and offered him a scholarship.

USC it is.
