Presenting the War Room - Huge recruiting weekend

In our second War Room of the week we discuss options for a couple of assistant coaches and dive into a huge recruiting weekend for Clay Helton.

More details of what is inside:

  • Is Tyson Helton a good fit for USC's new offensive coordinator position?
  • Full breakdown of all of the visiting prospects heading to USC today, including a big name out-of-state surprise.
  • USC's secret weapon in recruiting Florida got a boost this week. Details inside.
  • Some interesting tidbits about running back coach Johnny Nansen and his future with the program.
  • Trojan assistant coaches hit the road this week, visiting tons of prospects including former five-star linebacker commit Mique Juarez.
  • True freshman Porter Gustin got his second career start in the Pac-12 Championship Game and he made a huge play that his teammates were talking about.
  • Defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox is no longer on staff, but when you break down some of the Trojan defensive stats you may be surprised.
  • Speaking of stats, USC special teams in 2015 were anything but special. Putrid is more like it.
  • The USC basketball team is off to a 7-2 start, but Andy Enfield may shakeup the lineup a bit to help kick start the offense.
  • The very latest in the Todd McNair case vs. the NCAA.
  • Plus plenty more!
