USC and UCLA are in the middle of one of the most interesting arms races in college football recruiting.
With the Trojans and Bruins sharing the same recruiting territory, many prospects are going to like both schools until it's time to pick one. A defensive tackle from a high school that mainly sends its studs to USC digs the idea of playing in Westwood. Yet, a defensive end who likes UCLA is watching what's happening in Troy.
California is not the only state that USC and UCLA have their sights set on, as both schools like a 5-star receiver from Arizona.
