The USC Trojans are reloading with terrific 2010 and 2011 top-five football recruiting classes. But never has a class been more critical or difficult than 2012.

The NCAA sanctions after the USC appeal is likely denied will limit the Trojans to 15 new scholarships per year and 75 total scholarships for each of the next three years.

1. The scholarship math is complicated, so it needs to be understood and managed.
2. The positions of greatest need must be identified in order to prioritize recruiting.
3. Finally, the top candidates for these needed positions must be identified and tracked.

      Let’s review these areas in the following slides.
