USC added to its recruiting class Thursday, landing the nation's top tight end recruit Duce Robinson.

He announced his decision on Instagram.

Robinson chose the Trojans over Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Alabama, and other top programs. He was the final prospect from ESPN's top 300 to announce his decision.

"It kind of just felt like whichever one made the most sense, kind of came down to those three schools between Georgia, USC, and Texas," Robinson said, according to Tom VanHaaren of ESPN.

"I had great relationships with all those staffs, and I've been talking to all those staffs for multiple years now. But at the end of the day, we kind of just had to sit down and discuss the school that was going to make the most sense to us."

Robinson is listed at 6-foot-5, 225 pounds. He had 84 catches for 1,614 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns last season for Pinnacle High School in Phoenix.

The top tight end recruit is also a star baseball player. He could be selected in the MLB draft in July, as he's the 84th-ranked player on ESPN's top 100 baseball prospects list.

Robinson joins a star-studded USC recruiting class that includes quarterback Malachi Nelson and wide receiver Zachariah Branch.
