Linebacker Derik Calhoun decommitted from USC.
The USC football program is clearly in flux these days, as the Lane Kiffin era came to a crashing halt in September. Uncertainty has cost the Trojans dearly on the recruiting trail.
It hasn't just been the team's inability to land top-tier commitments. USC has lost significant members from its 2014 recruiting class, including two defenders featured in ESPN's new rankings.
Defensive tackle Tashon Smallwood (Fresno, Calif.) decommitted from the Trojans in September. He is ranked No. 240 overall and No. 20 at his position.
Smallwood, a 4-star prospect, is considering offers from Notre Dame, California and Oklahoma.
Linebacker Derik Calhoun (El Cerrito, Calif.) ended his verbal pact with USC this month. The 4-star recruit committed to Arizona State on Oct. 27.
Calhoun is currently ranked No. 224 by ESPN. He is listed as the 15th-best outside linebacker.
Offensive tackle Jordan Poland (No. 279), defensive end Malik Dorton (No. 215) and guard Toa Lobendahn (No. 155) are USC commits on the revised list.
