As the February 6 National Letter of Intent signing day draws near, USC continues to put the final touches on what most agree is a fabulous 2013 recruiting class.
Led by consensus Top 20 players such as quarterback Max Browne and safety Su'a Cravens, the Trojans will welcome a class that is long on quality even if it is short on numbers.
Still shackled with NCAA mandated sanctions, which have removed 10 scholarships per year along with roster restrictions, USC has had to negotiate the crafting of this class with delicate precision.
And because of the scholarship restrictions, Lane Kiffin and his staff have had to scrutinize who would receive a Trojan offer, and many players who would have otherwise had an opportunity to be Trojans found themselves looking elsewhere.
All of which means that at this point in the process, USC has pretty much determined how the 2013 class will look.
Given the very few scholarships left to hand out, the Trojans will not entertain much in the way of late surprises to add to this class.
What follows is a look at who might claim the last three spots in this class, assuming that USC does not suffer anymore decommitments from athletes who have given their verbal pledges.
Whether or not the men of Troy get any of these guys remains to be seen, but what is certain is that the Trojans would love to see a signed LOI from some of these players on February 6.
