Presenting the War Room by

This week in the War Room we have a ton of recruiting updates from the USC Skills Camp and Rising Stars Camps (Jordan Wright pictured above at the RSC).

More details of what is inside:

  • There were a pair of big, literally big, no-shows at the USC Rising Stars Camp this week.
  • The Trojans are stepping it up when it comes to recruiting defensive linemen.
  • USC is after a pair of five-star running backs from California, but only one of them made it to campus this past week.
  • It was a great first trip to Los Angeles for Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern safety and USC commit C.J. Miller.
  • One of the top prospects from USC’s class of 2016 decided not to sign a National Letter of Intent.
  • Junior defensive lineman Kenny Bigelow may be out with an injury, but he is still doing his part to help the program this summer.
  • USC is replacing a ton of veteran talent that not only had great production on the field, but leadership qualities off of it. Which guys are stepping up to fill in those roles?
  • Will the recent controversy surrounding outgoing athletic director Pat Haden impact his fundraising role for the Coliseum renovation going forward?
  • More info on the new grad transfer for the Trojan basketball team.
  • Plus plenty more!

    This is a special feature for subscribers only written by the staff and analysts. The reason why it is posted on the premium board is that it is the only way to ensure that the info stays exclusive to the Trojan fans.
