With his decision coming Tuesday, Gustin will choose among USC, Ohio State, Utah and Arizona State. Most believe it will come down to Ohio State and USC, with ASU the dark horse. His final in-home and official visits went to the Buckeyes, so Urban Meyer gets the last say. However, Gustin's family is full of Trojan fans, and in terms of relationships, the USC staff has an edge. The wildcard will be the head of the household, John Gustin, Porter's father.

Green took his final official visit of the process two weeks ago to Arizona State, and upon returning home, sources say he made several calls to coaches informing them of where he was not going. We know Arizona State and Miami both received calls, so on paper this is a decision between Oregon and USC. With academics being the priority, and his family only unofficially visiting Eugene last summer, there's a very good chance Green wears cardinal and gold Wednesday.

USC has been the team to beat for John Houston shortly after he was offered a scholarship by the Trojans. He was such an obvious Trojan lean, UCLA stopped recruiting him last year. He officially visited Miami, Arizona State, Oklahoma and Oregon, then USC Jan. 16. Steve Sarkisian was in-home with Houston last Friday and all indications is that meeting sealed the status-quo of his recruitment.

After official visits to Notre Dame, Florida State, Michigan and then LSU, sources with each school still predict Marshall will sign with USC. UCLA will also have a hat on the table, but the Bruins have been wary to recruit Marshall because of his assumed allegiance to USC. However, an Instagram photo of Marshall in a bathrobe at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills created speculation that he officially visited UCLA this weekend. USC has yet to get so much as an unofficial visit since November, and in recruiting, actions often speak louder than words. The question remains, is it all misdirection, or will USC suffer an unpredictable loss in recruiting?

Although USC entered the race for Scott a tad later than his other suitors, the late bloomer had no established relationships with other school to overcome. Scott took a midweek visit to USC, which he loves, and the proximity of the campus to home is something his mother loves. His other choices are Ole Miss, Texas, Miami and Purdue. Once USC put on the full court press, it was going to be tough to get him out of Southern California.

Wheatley officially visited USC in December, where he raved about his trip to Los Angeles - his second of the year. Marques Tuiasospo has been the lead recruiter on Wheatley for USC, having been a member of the Oakland Raiders with his father, Tyrone Sr. Tui has a great relationship with the Wheatley family, but once Jim Harbaugh hired Tyrone Sr. as an assistant coach, it was only a matter of time before Michigan came calling. Last week, Wheatley took an official visit to Ann Arbor, and for the first time, the winds of change whistled Hail The Victors. It's hard to pick against Michigan here but if the nation No. 1 tight end Chris Clark commits to UMich, it could help nudge Wheatley to USC.

An advance scholarship candidate, the last time we spoke to Wilson, he had made his decision and was not interested in USC's offer. However, after taking an official visit to Colorado this weekend, sources say Wilson unofficially visited USC to discuss his scholarship status with the Trojans coaching staff. If the Trojans strike out on a couple of players on signing day, Wilson could receive a standard scholarship offer, which could change this outlook greatly. But any special designation by USC will see Wilson likely sign with Arizona State.
