Chris Steele ruled NCAA eligible for 2019

True freshman corner Chris Steele, who transferred from Florida, has been granted immediate eligibility for this coming season by the NCAA. Steele, the one-time Bellflower St. John Bosco prep All-American, has been working out with the Trojans during training camp and has been impressive with his physical skills and his football IQ.

Steele (6-1, 190) had enrolled at Florida this past spring after graduating a semester early from St. John Bosco and participated in the Gators’ spring practice and was said to have made an impact. During his senior season at St. John Bosco, Steele had 32 tackles, 11 deflections, two blocked field goals, and an interception.

Steele is expected to see playing time in the cornerback rotation this fall. Through four fall camp practices, Greg Johnson and Isaac Taylor-Stuart have manned the starting positions, with Olaijah Griffin heavily involved. Senior Dominic Davis is in the mix as well, and Steele joins fellow true freshmen Adonis Otey and Jayden Williams as additions to the outside cornerback position.
