Came across a few USD football-related items on the ‘Net tonight:
** Marian Central High School (Ill.) offensive lineman Cody O’Neill gave the Coyotes a verbal commitment after visiting campus two weekends ago.
O’Neill (6-foot-3, 285) saw time on the offensive and defensive line as a starter his junior and senior years, and started at guard as a sophomore. He comes from a school that has produced Division I players at Iowa, Notre Dame and Wisconsin within the last three years. Other schools on O’Neill’s list were Eastern Illinois, Illinois State, Miami (Ohio) and Northern Illinois.
** Chamberlain (Fla.) defensive backs Chris Frierson and Rico Valdez also committed to USD, the Tampa Tribune reported Saturday. The duo joins teammate Dametrius Turner, who verballed to USD last week.
Turner, also a defensive back, has a highlight video right here.
FYI, National Signing Day is next Wednesday, Feb. 4.
