Presenting the War Room

Spring is winding down but the competition on Howard Jones Field is not. In the War Room we discuss that, shifts on the recruiting landscape, basketball transfers and plenty more.

More details of what is inside:

  • A change in the offensive philosophy with how the tight ends are used is impacting USC football recruiting.
  • More insider info on the de-commitment of Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) four-star cornerback Thomas Graham and more on what it means for recruiting overall.
  • Improved depth at some spots and second changes for players at other spots has sparked Pete Carroll-like competitions this spring.
  • Speaking of competition, things got a little chippy at practice on Thursday and it wasn’t an accident.
  • We had a one-on-one sit down with USC basketball coach Andy Enfield and share some of what he said here in the War Room.
  • Plus plenty more!
