It’s USC for Bishop Amat’s Trevon Sidney!


Bishop Amat High School football standout Trevon Sidney won’t stray too far from home to play his college ball.

Sidney, a highly coveted receiver and defensive back, picked USC on Friday evening over a who’s who list of college football powerhouses. His verbal commitment was made at “The Opening” football showcase put on by Nike in Oregon.

“The coaching staff is just a great coaching staff,” Sidney said when asked why he chose USC. “Whenever I go there I just feel better and better about the school. When I’m there, I feel most at home.

“I’m pretty proud. I never thought I would be where I am. It’s still a shock.”

Sidney had narrowed his decision to UCLA, Washington, Michigan, Notre Dame and USC. Playing close to family and friends also was a key factor for Sidney, who lives in Covina.

Sidney set out this offseason to improve his stock at receiver. He was already considered one of the top corner back recruits in the country, but prefers to play on offense, which is something USC will allow him to do. Sidney also said the USC coaching staff was open to him playing both ways.

In 2013, Sidney was the Tribune’s Newcomer of the Year after intercepting eight passes in his sophomore season at Amat. Last season, Sidney was an All-Area performer at defensive back and was also the Lancers’ third-leading receiver.

The offseason combine circuit really helped boost Sidney’s exposure as a receiver. He was named wide receiver MVP at the Passing Downs Tournament in March and the Rivals 100 5-Star Camp in Baltimore, Maryland in May.

Sidney joins Glendora quarterback Matt Fink in becoming a local USC commit. Next up could be Sidney’s Bishop Amat teammate receiver Tyler Vaughns.

    Take your sons out and see this guy play!!! He can do it all!!!! USC is lucky to land him. I just hope they keep him at WR and don’t move him to the backfield.

      He is a good player.. But IMO great players show up on BIG games.

      • Root for the boys

        USC, ND, Wisconsin, UCLA, Washington, and Michigan must see something that you don’t! Don’t they watch the big games?

        • Real talk

          No disrespect but what I saw was him getting beat all night against CC…

          • Root for the boys

            Everyone talks about all his interceptions his sophomore year. Was is 8 or was it 10?

    Allow him to play offense. Allow him to play defense. Allow him to go both ways. Allow him to ride the white horse and then allow him to lead the band. Sounds like a good deal to me.
