The War Room

This week in the War Room we take a detailed look at which assistant coaches made their mark with USC's top-ranked recruiting class, look at class of 2016 quarterback recruiting, the Bob Connelly hire and more.

More details of what is inside:

  • Which coach should win "recruiter of the year" for the Trojans after signing the No. 1 recruiting class in the country? We let you decide by breaking down each recruit one by one and listing which assistants were the primary and secondary contacts throughout the recruiting process.
  • An interesting turn of events in USC's recruitment of Shreveport (La.) five-star quarterback Shea Patterson.
  • The Trojans are off to a great start recruiting Virginia Beach (Va.) five-star cornerback Levonta Taylor.
  • Could four-star linebacker commit Porter Gustin be a two-sport athlete at USC?
  • USC now has officially named Bob Connelly as the offensive line coach and Dan Weber shares are few positive thoughts on the hire.
  • Plus plenty more!
