2026 DB MADDEN RIORDAN COMMITS TO USC



WHO IS MADDEN RIORDAN?


Madden Riordan is a defensive back from Sierra Canyon High School in Pasadena, CA. The 5-foot-11-inch, 150-pound corner chose USC over Arizona and California. Riordan has no ranking by any of the recruiting services yet.


WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF THE COMMITMENT FOR USC


Riordan is the Trojan's fourth commitment for the 2026 class, joining quarterback Julian Lewis, cornerback Brandon Lockhart and wide receiver Ja’Myron Baker. USC has the #1 recruiting class both in the Big Ten and in the country for 2026.


HOW QUICKLY CAN MADDEN RIORDAN CONTRIBUTE AT USC?


How quickly Riordan can see the field will depend on which position he and USC choose for him to play. Riordan can play both cornerback and safety and with that kind of versatility his ability to see the field early increases. However, as with his fellow USC commits, 2026 is a long way away. And with the transfer portal being a great friend to USC head coach Lincoln Riley, it is impossible to say precisely how fast Riordan can contribute to USC.

SCOUTING MADDEN RIORDAN


Madden Riordan is a solid defensive back, no matter which position he plays at USC. As a cornerback, he is very good in coverage. His ability to close on a receiver in the backfield is remarkable. He also has great awareness, often getting his head around to find the ball and getting a hand on it to break up the pass. As a safety Riordan does not shy away from making tackles. His closing speed on outside runs is very good. His tackling technique is good, but he will need to bulk up some if he plays against the bigger backs and receivers in the Big Ten. Thankfully he has two years to do that.
