USC Football Recruiting: Top out of State Prospects Trojans Are After
Harry How/Getty Images

USC fired head coach Lane Kiffin over the weekend, so much speculation will begin about who will be the next leader in Troy. However, another important part of Kiffin's dismissal is how it will impact recruiting.

USC currently has seven commitments, and all are from California. The Trojans have always had a exceptional presence on their state's recruiting trail, but what separates USC from many other powerhouse programs is its ability to land out-of-state prospects at a rare rate.

Whoever the next coach is, he and his staff will have to possess the ability to consistently land prospects from outside the Golden State. A receiver from Louisiana could ignite USC's sputtering offense, while an offensive tackle from Arizona is wanted back in the fold. Plus a defensive end in Illinois could be a great fit for the Trojans' scheme.
