    USC landed in the top schools lists of four major out of state offensive line targets on Saturday.

    Five-star offensive guard Devin Campbell (Arlington, Tex./Bowie) is the nation's No. 7 overall prospect and No. 1 offensive guard. He included USC among his top eight schools, with Alabama, Florida State, Houston, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas and Texas A&M. Texas is considered the favorite, but USC only offered on February 3 and still managed a spot among the finalists.

    Four-star offensive tackle Kiyaunta Goodwin (Charlestown, Ind./Charlestown) put USC among his final 13 schools. The 6-foot-7, 300-pound tackle is the nation's No. 47 overall prospect and No. 5 offensive tackle. Ohio State is the likely leader at this point, with Alabama, Arizona State, Clemson, Florida State, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State and Oregon also listed.

    Four-star offensive tackle Dayne Shor (Bradenton, Fla./IMG Academy) put USC among his top 15 schools, alongside Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas A&M and UCF. The 6-foot-6, 295-pound lineman is the nation's No. 176 overall prospect and N0. 23 offensive tackle.

    And USC made the top eight for four-star offensive tackle Qae'shon Sapp (Leesburg, Ga./Lee County), a 6-foot-5, 340-pound prospect who checks in as the No. 349 overall prospect and No. 41 offensive tackle. This is another prospect that USC has done well with in a short time, as USC only offered in early February. His top eight includes Arkansas, Cincinnati, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and USC.

    It says something that the Trojans are consistently showing up on these list for big-time offensive linemen. It's one thing to do this and another thing completely to get them to sign, but it's clear that the offensive line pitch is working at least a bit right now. It would be nice to be able to get some of these guys on campus before they make a decision, because that's when you can really gauge the interest level.

    His body transformation has been pretty incredible already. He’s gone from being just a huge kid to looking like a No. 1 overall draft pick in a fairly short time.

    With all the Texas coaches on staff, how did they wait so long to offer Campbell?

    I'm not sure of the specifics on Campbell but sometimes you don't want to offer an out of state guy unless there's an actual shot of getting him. Might have been that McGuire thought he'd have a chance in chasing him.
