New head coach Steve Sarkisian has wasted no time building his new program at USC, as the Trojans have added a pair of 4-star defenders to their 2014 recruiting class.
He made his announcement on Twitter.

Like Pelon, Lockett also announced his pledge to the Trojans via Twitter.
At 5'11", 170 pounds, Lockett has the height to be a dominant corner, though he will need to add size and strength once he arrives on campus. On the other hand, Pelon will head to Los Angeles essentially game-ready, listed at 6'4", 275 pounds.
Coaching changes always see their first wave of impact on the recruiting trail, whether negative or positive.
For USC, a program that has seen its depth depleted by NCAA sanctions, that impact must be positive right away.
For now, Sarkisian looks to be on his way to rebuilding the Trojan program to what it once was.
