The USC Trojans have offered 14 offensive linemen in their 2012 recruiting class.
However, with sanctions limiting USC to only 15 scholarship players per year and already nine players committed, the Trojans will only be able to add a few more linemen.
USC is likely to start four upperclassmen on the offensive line in 2011, with at least two players potentially leaving after the season.
Lane Kiffin has shored up the future of the interior line with the 2011 recruiting class by taking four offensive guards, but will need to secure the outside of the line in 2012.
Players like Arik Armstead and Max Tuerk have already verbally committed to the Trojans, but with the offensive line being such an area of need and with depth issues inevitable for the coming seasons, finding durable, versatile offensive tackles will be crucial.
With that being said, here are five offensive linemen the Trojans would love to get in their 2012 recruiting class.
