JC lineman enrolls at USC

Junior college defensive lineman Claude Pelon has officially enrolled at USC, the school announced on Monday.

Pelon, a 6-foot-5, 285-pound end from Mesa (Ariz.) Community College, signed with the Trojans in December, but had his enrollment delayed a bit while he was cleared for admission into USC. In the meantime, classes started on Jan. 13, which means Pelon is already a couple weeks behind.

He’s expected to make an impact right away for the Trojans.

“Claude is a big, physical defensive end,” said USC coach Steve Sarkisian. “He a guy we think can step right in and contribute immediately.”

The Trojans lost end George Uko early to the NFL draft, so it’s likely that Pelon steps into the defensive line rotation early.

    This is exactly the kind of guy you have to root for. Probably looked over during High School, goes to the local Community College, makes good and then gets the opportunity to play for one of the premier programs in America. Not only that, he’ll get a great education and who knows, maybe an opportunity to play someday on Sundays.
    Go Titans (Don’t forget, baseball is just around the corner)
