Presenting the War Room

This week in the War Room we transition from the recruiting class of 2016 to 2017, discuss the basketball team and situation at athletic director.

More details of what is inside:

  • In an ideal world the Trojans would have added another cornerback or two in the recruiting class of 2016. But the players available in 2017 will more than make up the difference for USC.
  • The very latest on Calabasas (Calif.) wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson Jr. and how his recruitment could impact a local five-star player.
  • It is still very early in the 2017 recruiting cycle, but some of the recent scholarship offers by USC tell the tale as far as what direction Clay Helton wants this program to go.
  • Don’t look now but that USC basketball team is good, real good.
  • Speaking of basketball, Andy Enfield continues to do well on the recruiting front.
  • A few thoughts on Pat Haden’s health and the Trojans search for a new AD.
  • Plus plenty more!
