    Thought one needed to be started in order to track the LOIs.

    So far we have seen Angeline signing his. And intel that Keyshawn "Pie" Young has signed his to USC.

    Kongbo is supposed to announce at 1000 EST. Cook was supposed to announce at 0900 EST but I haven't seen anything.

    Price would be huge get... If Helton pulls that along with Cook and Young, it shows that SC is still appealing and has national recognition, despite less than spectacular results as of late.

    Also, wonder if the signing of Aneline is an indication that Asaisi is not coming.

    Hmm...it's after 7am...nothing on Kongbo?

    I think with Cook signing it is looking more likely that we will have a full slate today?

    Maybe BKU reminded Kongbo what happens to a program when the NZAA wants to knock you down. A roster of 55 scholarship players won't help Kongbo get some rest on the field.

    Looking at the current rankings, I'd say USC could pass on a Polynesian coach and get someone who can recruit the SEC. They are set up with recruits to absolutely OWN the playoffs and Natty's for the next decade.

    Does it piss anyone else off that the media is playing up our weak class ranking but they aren't adding in the blueshirts? I've read a couple articles where they dont even mention that we signed 5 blueshirts.

    If more than three players commit we could use blueshirts like last year.

    Isn't Fatu the only one that can BS? I didn't check to see if the other commits took OVs or not.

    So hearing that Kongbo might be back on the Vols-train(per twitter). I know he is the #1 Juco DE, but how good is this kid and how big of a loss would it be to not pick him up. Our pass-rush last year was virtually non-existent.

    So where do we stand with our 7 commits today -

    Cook
    Young
    Murphy
    Malepaei
    Fatu

    That leaves two spots.

    I'm betting it's Jones and Price.

    No Asiasi, no Kongbo, no Boss.

    I wish we had 5 additional scholarships. There are still some great players out there that haven't signed yet.

    But today has been a very solid day for HCCH. It sounds like what made the difference in flipping Malepeai from Oregon was that Clay flew out to Hawaii and personally recruited him. That's the personal touch --- the CLOSERS touch, that makes all the difference.

    It would be amazing to get the De La Salle boys, Asiasi and Boss, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen. Oh well -- still a very good class.

    This just in: Clay Helton will also help coach the USC diving team as well as the gymnastics team, when people saw him doing flips in Heritage Hall. Thus far, he's got two signature moves: the Cook and the Malepeai. Does he have any other flips in him?

    Lots of trending going on for Price to USC. Even UGA mod has picked USC on TOS.

    Jones & Price seem like the most likely last 2 for us. Unless we get lucky with Asiasi, then who becomes the blueshirt?? We need everybody we can get

    Wow, what a day! After all the handwringing and fretting the last couple weeks and uncharacteristically low volume of rumors, today has shaped up to be quite a memorable day. This whole class, including those who committed early on and stuck with their commitments, all of them together beat my expectations.

    Fight On!

    Fair to say that this class was one four-star DT away from being a terrific one? (Assuming Jones takes the final spot, that is.)

    The last two years kinda spoiled us, but this class will be just fine.

    Lotsa talent going across town, too. The Bruins will continue to be relevant, provided Mora stays at the helm.

    Asiasi has a lot of swag. I like him. I hope he's a Trojan but I'll pull for the kid regardless.

    Yeah. We were just too late into the game. BTW it looks like fUCLA hiring Tui did absolutely nothing for them.

    Looks like once we get Jones, we should be in the top 10 classes according to TOS-247.

    OK so it appears we had a good signing day for which I'm excited. I just don't understand why ESPN still has SC ranked #16 in this years recruiting class? Yikes, fUCLA has 27 recruits with 12 being 4 star recruits. I don't follow HS football enough to know if our recruits match up to the other schools, but I'm hoping Helton has laid the foundation for a championship run in a couple of years?

    Our problem is volume, not quality. The recruiting sites don't count the BS guys who took up five schollies. Thanks to Sark.

    fUCLA put together a hell of a front 7 recruiting class this year. Not anywhere close to USC's last year, but still great by their standards.

    Quality, not quantity. We've got a lot of solid 4 and 5 star players in this class. By quality, we're the fourth best class in the nation. Once Jackie signs, we'll bump up further.

    According to Scout, we've got 6 kids ranked as 3 stars, where was UCLA, with their massive class, has 13 3-stars. But make no mistake, Mora signed a couple of very good defensive players today. So did we.

    In my opinion, the weakest part of our defense the past couple of years has been a lack of playmaking linebackers. Other than Sua, we didn't have the horses that made game changing plays.

    There isn't a game changing linebacker in this class. Oh well. Hopefully Pendergast's system will make good use of the guys we've got. We got a bunch of those good defensive recruits last year, so let's hope that we can utilize them.

    We will be okay. TOS-247 has us at #11 before Jack. Once we get Jack, we should move up to #8 or 9 ahead of Clemson and Texas. Not too shabby and a top ten class as predicted.

    If we figured in the blue-shirts from 2015, we would likely be top 5.

    I'm glad to see we moved up to #11 on ESPN's recruiting class list. I realize it doesn't mean anything, but it sure make me feel a little better now than I did earlier this morning.

    So is that a wrap for the day? Any more scholarship spots left or any other announcements we're still waiting for?

    With Fatu, that is 20 recruits + the 4 blueshirts (Taylor McNamara and Daniel Imatorbhebhe, Clayton Johnston, Deontay Burnett) so we're at 24? 1 spot left?

    Nice, after all the talk of Stanford leading the Top 12 Class and perhaps fUCLA the only Pac 12 team to potentially leap Stanford...USC leaps Stanford as the top Pac 12 recruiting school.

    Congrats Helton...Hatin' Haden not so much.

    "This year, the Trojans' history of fast closes aside, it seems like a longshot that the program will finish in the top 10." - LA Times yesterday.

    Right now Rivals has us at #9 and ESPN at #11.

    EDIT - Rivals just bumped us up to #7
