Presenting The War Room

With less than a week remaining until USC fall camp starts the War Room takes a look at some of the key players on the team and provides updates on Trojan football and basketball recruiting.

More details of what is inside:

  • Positive update on San Clemente (Calif.) four-star quarterback Jack Sears.
  • USC could be in line for two new commitments from Florida in the coming weeks.
  • The latest on USC's involvement with Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral four-star defensive end and former UCLA commit Hunter Echols.
  • A veteran player in the secondary talks about the one game suspension for cornerback Isaiah Langley following his arrest in May.
  • Soon after Bubba Bolden de-committed the Trojan coaching staff already had another local safety prospect in mind.
  • Former offensive lineman Khaliel Rodgers is now lining up on the defensive side of the ball, but there is more to this position switch than meets the eye.
  • Offensive tackle Zach Banner listens to what people say about him and he uses it to his advantage.
  • We have an in-depth look at USC basketball recruiting.
  • There have been a few new twist and turns in the Todd McNair lawsuit against the NCAA.
  • Plus plenty more!
