Desert Mountain quarterback Kedon Slovis accomplished a lot on the field and in the classroom.
In two years as the Wolves’ starter, he tallied 55 total touchdowns and just six interceptions. He was also a three-time Sports360AZ All-Academic selection with a cumulative 3.65 GPA.
On Wednesday, he added one more accomplishment: USC signee.
The first signature is in!

It took Slovis just five days to commit after the Trojans offered him in May. He kept a similar pace on Wednesday when he was the first USC commit to send in his letter of intent.
David Sedmak and Pro Football Hall of Famer Kurt Warner helped Slovis develop into one of the state’s top quarterbacks. The USC signee now has the opportunity to learn from another top offensive mind in Trojans offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury.
“He’s coached some of the best in the NFL,” Slovis said. “Patrick Mahomes is leading the MVP race I think. To be able to learn from a guy that’s coached some of the best in the NFL right now and is so young, that’s really exciting.”
The son of two teachers, Slovis also values the education he’ll get at USC. He wants to pursue a degree in business administration and will enroll early to jumpstart his college career.
“I want to learn the new offense,” Slovis said. “I want to come in and learn as much as I can as soon as I can.”
A Near Six-Pac
Kedon Slovis is one of five quarterbacks from the Grand Canyon State to sign with a Pac-12 program in the last two years. Tyler Shough signed with Oregon, and Jamarye Joiner pledged to Arizona last class. Gunner Cruz, who will play his college ball at Washington State, and Cal commit Spencer Brasch join Slovis as this year’s quarterbacks who are Pac-12 bound.
