The Trojans continue to make offers to some outstanding prep talent, and they are looking both nationally and locally.
Here are some recent offers by USC.
USC has had its eye on this dynamic defensive end from St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, Calif., for some time now.
Dorton is a 6'3", 235-pound 4-star Scout.com prospect who combines raw power with great athleticism to form a dominant package on the edge.
He grew up rooting for USC, according to an article by Scout.com's Greg Biggins, and while he is not ready to commit, you have to like USC's chances.
It's no secret that USC needs cornerbacks, and in its pursuit, the team has reached into the heart of Texas to offer a very good one in Nick Watkins out of Dallas, Texas.
Watkins is an ESPN.com 4-star prospect who has excellent size at 6'1", 180 pounds and even better technique with his coverage skills.
Holding more than 30 offers, he will likely take his time before making a decision.
When one thinks of a hotbed of high school football, it is not often that Kansas comes to mind. Yet that is where you will find Peyton Newell, an ESPN.com 3-star offensive lineman.
Though he's only rated as a 3-star prospect, at 6'2" and 275 pounds, Newell is attracting plenty of attention. That's evident by his more than two dozen offers.
