With California being exceptionally deep with talented recruits this year, USC figures to have a banner recruiting cycle. However, if people have learned one thing about the Trojans' recruiting methods, it's that they love targeting out-of-state prospects.
States such as Florida, Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Ohio, Kentucky, Arizona, Washington and New Jersey have been raided in the past by coaches from Troy. New head coach Steve Sarkisian is not going to change much of USC's recruiting approach, so the Trojans staff will once again be balancing its time around the Golden State with pounding the pavement outside its backyard.
A receiver in the desert has the speed and quickness that USC covets, while a defensive end in Illinois likes the idea of playing in Los Angeles. Also, the Sunshine State has several prospects who have caught Sarkisian's eye.
