Recruiting for the USC Trojans is in full force, and there are already seven verbal commitments in the books.

All seven commits are either 5-star or high 4-star recruits with the possibility of adding even more talent in the near future.

There are also plenty off offers at many positions still open for potential recruits. This is a breakdown of offers still out there for players based on position.

Keep in mind, just like all of the Trojans' commits, if a player is listed as a commit to another school, nothing is finalized until February, so they are added in here.

Running Back

  • Thomas Tyner (Oregon commit)
  • Ryan Green
  • Alvin Kamara
  • Derrick Green
  • Greg Bryant (Oklahoma commit)
  • Dontre Wilson (Oregon commit)
  • Tyshon Dye
  • David Williams
  • Jamel James

While the Trojans currently have two running backs already committed in Justin Davis and Ty Isaac, each person on this list could possibly add a different dimension to the offense.

Alvin Kamara seems to be one of the players many are intrigued by because of his abilities, but getting him away from SEC country may be a difficult task.

Both Isaac and Davis, should they remain committed, could make this list null, and the possibility of taking another running back could come down to an athlete who could do other things for the Trojans.

Wide Receiver

  • Derrick Griffin (TAMU commit)
  • Ahmad Fulwood (Florida commit)
  • Laquon Treadwell
  • Tramel Terry (Georgia commit)
  • Darrell Daniels
  • Demorea Stringfellow
  • DeAndre Woods
  • Andre Levrone (Virginia commit)
  • Marqui Hawkins (Florida commit)
  • Paul Harris

The Trojans seem to be looking for two wide receivers in this class, a bigger receiver and someone with more speed.

As it is, the Trojans have a commitment from Eldridge Massington, who just so happens to have the size and speed combo down at 6'3", 205 pounds, and he's blazing fast for that size.

The two receivers that the Trojans seem to have the most leverage with would be Darrell Daniels and Demorea Stringfellow.

Either one of them would be a great complement across from Massington or any of the other speed wide receivers the Trojans currently have.

Offensive Line

  • Laremy Tunsil
  • Austin Golson (FSU commit)
  • Ethan Pocic (LSU commit)
  • Logan Tuley-Tillman (Michigan commit)
  • David Dawson (Michigan commit)
  • Brandon Kublanow (Georgia commit)
  • Nico Falah
  • Richy Klepal
  • Christian Morris

The Trojans could be targeting two offensive linemen in this class to continue adding depth along the line.

Nico Falah could be the potential favorite being close to home, and USC is in a battle with UCLA for his services.

While he currently doesn't have an offer, Khaliel Rodgers could be the future player to end up with the Trojans should he impress them enough to get the offer.

It could come down to their chances at other players, such as Falah, Laremy Tunsil or someone like Kenny Lacy.

Defensive Line

  • Robert Nkemdiche
  • Montravius Adams
  • Carl Lawson (Auburn commit)
  • Tim Williams
  • Eddie Vanderdoes
  • Demarcus Walker
  • Justin Manning
  • Kelsey Griffin
  • Greg Gilmore
  • Greg Webb
  • Frank Herron (LSU commit)
  • Jason Hatcher
  • Torrodney Prevot
  • Joe Mathis
  • Caleb Brantley (Florida commit)
  • Scott Pagano
  • Jay Woods
  • Jason Carr (Tennessee commit)
  • Keith Bryant (Miami Fl. Commit)
  • Maquedius Bain (FSU commit)
  • Toby Johnson
  • Derrick Calloway

This is the position where there are tons off offers still out on the table, and the Trojans have a good shot at quite a few of them.

Currently, USC has verbal commitments from Kenny Bigelow and Kylie Fitts, two very good defensive linemen.

Montravius Adams will most likely take an official visit to USC when he is allowed to start taking officials, and Eddie Vanderdoes may be another favorite.

Joe Mathis, Jason Hatcher, Greg Gilmore, Derrick Calloway and Scott Pagano will all spend some time or another checking out USC as well.


  • Jaylon Smith (ND commit)
  • Matthew Thomas
  • Jonathan Allen (Alabama commit)
  • Alex Anzalone
  • Michael Hutchings
  • Trey Johnson (Auburn commit)
  • Mike Mitchell
  • Tyrell Robinson
  • E.J. Levenberry (FSU commit)
  • Courtney Love (Nebraska commit)
  • Reginald Carter (Georgia commit)
  • Marcus Robinson

It's unknown as to how many players the Trojans will take at linebacker or which potential commits end up at the position rather than their current listed position.

USC seems to be in very good with Michael Hutchings, and he could be the one linebacker that the Trojans take.

The Trojans made a huge push for Jaylon Smith before he chose Notre Dame and they could still try, but it may be a long shot to land him.

Defensive Backs

  • Vernon Hargreaves III
  • Priest Willis
  • Su’a Cravens
  • Max Redfield
  • Leon McQuay III
  • Tahaan Goodman
  • Jalen Ramsey
  • Artie Burns
  • Tyree Robinson
  • John Johnson
  • Ahmad Thomas (Oklahoma commit)

The Trojans are looking to take five defensive backs for the 2013 class, and they already have one verbal from Chris Hawkins.

Su'a Cravens is the big-name recruit and is set to make an announcement June 6. Cravens committing to USC could have a domino effect on multiple other Trojan targets.

Priest Willis and Tahaan Goodman have recently been pushing the idea of playing in college together, and Goodman and Hawkins are high school teammates.

Max Redfield is another star safety, but he could be lured by other teams telling him he can play wide receiver at the next level.

One name that people should watch out for is Artie Burns. He is a very talented player who could be rated much higher when all is said and done.


  • Chans Cox
  • Elijah Qualls
  • Jayron Kearse (Miami Fl. Commit)
  • Donald Gray

Chans Cox and Elijah Qualls could be the two players listed as athlete that the Trojans have the best shot at.

Chans Cox has the ability to play linebacker, but the Trojans seem to be recruiting him as an H-back/fullback type of player.

Qualls is a big defensive lineman who has also played running back and Wildcat quarterback for his high school.

There are so many offers out there and only so many spots that the Trojans can allow for the 2013 recruiting class.
