Everything I know about relevant recruits USCFan1991 Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 0 Likes Received: 0 Jan 11, 2017 #1 QB - Sears is faster than Darnold and has a nice deep ball but the coaches won't know more until they see him in practice. Mills (going to Stanford) could start for Stanford as a true freshman as their starter tore his ACL and the backup is transferring. I'm curious to see who ends up as our #2 QB, Sears or Fink. Fink has developed a lot this year. RB - It came down to a choice - a coin toss for Najee Harris or keep Carr? We kept Carr, who is the #2 running back in the country in my opinion. He is expected to contribute from day 1. We're only taking 1 RB WR - Joseph Lewis is a lock, Amari Rodgers has some smoke around him (Clemson might drop him) but at 5'9", 225 he's a strange prospect. Marlon Williams was an unfortunate loss, he would have been a nice addition, but he wanted to stay south. I predict we end up with Lewis, Grimes, and some guys who could go either way as a DB or WR (Greg Johnson is one). Lewis's teammate Jalen Hall is going to be Julio Jones-level good and we are in a great place with him. Tight End - Krommenhoek is very smart and a great blocker, but he could outgrow TE and end up as a tackle. Josh Falo is the big target but we have a freshman named Cary Angeline who might scare him off. Angeline will be our #1 tight end next year if he keeps developing. He's been called "next year's Darnold" OL - 5* Austin Jackson is a lock, but he's going to need a year to add weight. Vera-Tucker is legit, and has the size to contribute at guard immediately. Vorhees is on campus already rooming with our QB commit. Wyatt Davis is thinking of flipping to USC but he was terrible at the Army camp so the staff might go for a high upside kid named Jalen McKenzie, who is the son of the Raider's GM and brother of former 5* DT who is at Tennessee now. Raw but extremely good size and pedigree. Brett Neilon is legit as well as our next great center DL - Aubrey Solomon or Jay Tufele or bust right now. We really need one of those guys to come to USC and get on the field on day 1. Brandon Pili is possible nose tackle commit. Myron Tagovailoa is a high-upside kid from Hawaii that USC would like to land. JUCO Javon Kinlaw looks less likely by the day but he is visiting soon. I'd like to land him instead of getting a senior transfer, which is EXTREMELY likely right now. Terrance Lang and Lichtenstein are 100% to USC, and both will be nice additions. All the question marks are here right now, we just need to finalize things. My prediction is a class of 5 DL including Tufele/Tagovailoa/Lichtenstein/Lang/Grad Transfer. In an ideal world we'd land Solomon and Tufele, who would both be on the 2 deep next year I think LB - Levi Jones is the big target right now, but we won't know much until he's on campus. Staff is considering JUCO Gary Johnson but same situation. He'd be a day 1 starter next to Cam Smith I think. Not sure what will happen with Falaniko. K'Lavon Chaisson is a wild card right now, but he's a good player if we can make it happen. Hunter Echols is 100% solid, and has put on a lot of good weight this year. DJ Johnson is out of the picture, we're not recruiting him DB - I predict Juwan Burgess decommits, he didn't get a visit from the staff. Greg Johnson will likely end up at USC as a corner but could play as a do-everything player on offense. Bubba Bolden had a nice trolljob with the fake to ASU but we're lucky to have him because we need an impact player at safety. He's 6'2" and very fast. Isaiah Pola-Mao to USC is looking likely, and a Pola-Mao/Bolden backfield would be very strong and rangy. USC staff loves current commit CJ Miller. Jaylon Johnson is trying to flip to USC now but the staff is evaluating his health because they can't miss on a top corner this year. Lenoir silented to USC and Oregon both recently, it will go down to signing day. He's #1 on our board at DB with Darnay out. Tony Wallace is a blueshirt candidate. Darnay Holmes was forced to pick UCLA by his dad for questionable reasons so I am fine with those 2 heading to westwood. The staff loved Holmes though as a player, #1 on their board ST - Damon Johnson was a late offer but we had to have him as we lose a great longsnapper to graduation Last word was Adoree' is staying to get more tape on offense (where he was told he will play in the NFL) and that Tucker will likely be eligible for the 2017 season. Kevin Scott might be off the team soon for grades and attitude problems.
