USC added a very large man to its offensive line on Monday afternoon.

Five-star, 6-foot-8, 295-pound offensive lineman Zach Banner announced on Monday that he has committed to USC. Obviously, this is big news for the Trojans both literally and figuratively, as Banner is one of the most coveted offensive lineman prospects in the country.

Banner has some impressive bloodlines as well. The Lakewood, Washington product is the biological son of former NFL and Washington offensive tackle Lincoln Kennedy. Needless to say, if Banner can go on to have a career similar to that of his father's, then this will be a fantastic pickup for the Trojans.

According to MaxPreps' Tom Lemming, while Banner may not be the most polished offensive lineman in the 2012 class, he has the most upside. 

Banner chose USC over Washington and Oklahoma.
