The War Room

Defensive end Oluwole Betiku is the next big prospect to come out of Serra High School.

As USC spring football comes to a close the War Room takes a look at football and baseball recruiting, a Trojan social media mystery and much more.

More details of what is inside:

  • We tell you why USC commit Torrance (Calif.) four-star linebacker Mique Juarez could be one of the most interesting prospects during this recruiting cycle.
  • USC has dominated recruiting the major stars out of Serra High School over the past decade, but are the Bruins making inroads now?
  • Several top prospects, including some from out of state, are expected to be on campus this weekend for unofficial visits.
  • Is there some sort of feud brewing between USC starting quarterback Cody Kessler and Los Angeles media?
  • Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott was on the USC campus Thursday to chat with Pat Haden. Could there finally be some support in the works for USC in the fight against the NCAA?
  • We have a USC baseball recruiting update for you and a few notes on the big matchup this weekend against the Bruins.
  • Plus plenty more!
