Recruits Hang With UCLA Players

Southern California recruits packed the stands at the Coliseum to watch the crosstown battle between USC and UCLA... but when one team celebrated and the other walked disappointedly to the locker room - which way did the recruits go?

USC hosted a long list of top talent - both local and national - - on Saturday when the Trojans played the Bruins.

The outcome for USC, who has been in contested recruiting battles recently with the Bruins, couldn't have been worse.

The Trojans lost 35-14 to the Bruins and many of the recruits, who list UCLA as a favorite with USC, celebrated the win with the Bruins.

That included 2014's No. 1 offensive guard Damien Mama, who is down to Alabama, BYU, UCLA, and USC.

Also on the field and in the tunnel with the Bruins celebration after the game was a host of Gardena (Calif.) Serra players, including 2014 five-star Adoree Jackson, 2014 UCLA commit Jordan Lasley, as well as top 2015 USC & UCLA targets Rasheem Green and John Houston.

Recruits were eventually ushered to the USC locker room.
