These players are coupled together, largely because they were both local running back prospects who went on to have illustrious college careers at other Pac-12 schools.
Green, who hailed from nearby Gardena, Calif., committed to UCLA over the Trojans in 1984. During his tenure in Westwood, Green went on to set the all-time school rushing record with 3,731 yards.
To add insult to injury, Green seemed to play his best football against USC, rushing for 134 yards, 145 yards and 224 yards during his freshman, sophomore and junior seasons, respectively, against the Trojans. The Bruins won two of those three contests.
Kaufman originated from Lompac, Calif., roughly 150 miles from USC's campus. After selecting Washington over USC, Kaufman set Washington's school record in rushing yards with 4,106, a record he still holds today.
Kaufman also went on to be a first-round pick after earning All-Pac 10 honors three times and beating USC two times.
