    With the number of commitments recently, who is still on the wish list and how many spots are open? Assume there are still a lot of 4 and 5 start recruits we are targeting.

    RB Byron Cardwell
    WR Malcolm Johnson Jr.
    OG Josh Simmons
    OT Kingsley Suamataia
    DE Korey Foreman
    DE JT Tuimoloau
    DE Aaron Armitage

    Josh Simmons, OL
    Korey Foreman, DL
    Aaron Armitage, DL
    Ethan Calvert, LB
    Nathaniel Wiggins, DB
    Jaylin Smith, DB

    Erik do you see the bolded being possible? If that’s how our final 5-6 spots got filled I’d be ecstatic.

    You’d probably want a little more talent on the OL side of things and maybe another RB but I couldn’t complain especially with KF leading that class.

    We need Simmons to commit. He can bring in other recruits
    TrojanRider4Life and Jose like this.

    Armitage, Savea, Smith are the only ones that have made USC their top choice.
    I hope Cardwell comes in..we need RB's.

    Foreman, Calvert, Wiggins, Simmons, all have crystal balls with a high % of coming in. The rest in your list we have no shot at.

    What?! Ceyair wants to be at USC because of football and the film school. Smith is a USC boy, JT has a good shit of coming here and it’s 50/50 for Kingsley. Crystal Balls against us mean nothing right now. Those guys honestly have no idea what they’re talking about and are predicting against us based on their feelings towards SC. I’m listening to people actually close to the players and program like Scott Schrader who says the complete opposite of what you did.

    Hate to burst your bubble, but if you are relying on Scott Schrader's information, he's guessing most of the time. I've seen Scott Schrader recruiting predictions over the years and I think he's about 50%/50% correct/wrong at the final tally. Statistically that indicates he's guessing. I believe 247, Crystal Ball has better and more reliable predictors than Scott Schrader. 247 have analysis in the 90's and mid 80's % correct in the final tally. 247 has a large panel of recruiting analysis working the recruiting scene as a team vs. one as in Scott Schrader. Anyway, that's just my opinion.

    Every year the recruiting season has its ups and downs, I just go with the flow and not take things seriously. Kids change their minds all the time. Kids like to play mind games with the media and fans. Every year there are disappointments, late de-commitments, also nice surprises, unexpected commitments = Big Kabooms.

    From what I'm seeing with USC's new team of coordinators and coaches, these guys are good at their trade. The 16 commitments = very good players and the results of their hard work and savvy recruiting skills. So far, it's been an outstanding recruiting season, 16/25 or 64% complete and 4th place national rankings. Tremendous improvement from the final 2020 national rankings in the mid 50's. I think the coaches will close out Big with the remaining rides. I feel at the end, we are going to be very happy with the 2021 class. It will be balanced and filled with top players at every position.

    The momentum will continue into the 2022 and 2023 class. Cheers and Shaka...
