The War Room - Season Opener

In our final War Room before the season kicks off on Saturday we have the inside scoop on USC football recruiting and what is going on with the team on the eve of the season opener.

More details of what is inside:

  • The very strange recruiting saga with Pittsburg (Calif.) four-star cornerback Jordan Parker.
  • Four-star linebacker and USC commit Daelin Hayes will be paying a visit to hostile territory this weekend.
  • We have a list of the expected unofficial visitors USC will welcome in this weekend for the Arkansas State game.
  • Any status update for Torrance (Calif.) North five-star outside linebacker prospect Mique Juarez?
  • Deep thoughts with two of the more interesting guys on the team, linebacker Su'a Cravens and right tackle Zach Banner.
  • A few interesting facts about the Trojans opener Saturday night against Arkansas State.
  • Still no word on a Pac-12 Network and DirecTV deal yet, but you can now get USC's first two games in over 200 countries. Los Angeles? No. China? Yes.
  • The USC punt game took an interesting turn this past week and could change Trojan special teams significantly.
  • Plus plenty more!
