by Garry Paskwietz

The first 2016 ESPN 300 rankings were released today and here are five things that stood out when it comes to USC Trojans recruits.

1. The USC commits showed well: Four of the six verbal commits for the Trojans in the class of 2016 were ranked in the 300, led by linebacker Mique Juarez, who is ranked as the No. 4 OLB and No. 43 player overall. That lofty ranking is a testament the athleticism of Juarez, who doubles as a quarterback for his North Torrance team. Frank Martin checks in at No. 127 overall (No. 14 OT), linebacker Daelin Hayes is No. 213 overall (No. 11 ATH) and tailback/corner Melquise Stovall is at No. 219 overall (No. 12 ATH).
