Presenting the War Room

It’s a travel day War Room with our staff heading up to Seattle for USC’s huge match-up with Washington. Before we go we left you some updates on USC recruiting, thoughts on the team and even a few Trojan basketball tidbits.

More details of what is inside:

  • USC hosted a couple of “hush hush” visitors over the weekend. We have an update on them plus more on quarterback recruiting.
  • Will a local five-star prospect’s injury impact his recruitment and what does it mean for USC?
  • Some pretty high praise for USC quarterback Sam Darnold from the people in charge of stopping him.
  • Defensive linemen Rasheem Green has vastly improved this season thanks to some study habits he has picked up along the way.
  • Utah transfer Stevie Tu’ikolovatu is not only a stud on the defensive line, he helps his teammates out by acting as an extra assistant coach for Clay Helton.
  • How has this Trojan defense got better this year? Part of the reason is because of the scholarship talent now practicing on the USC scout team.
  • USC basketball season opens tonight and we have a few takes on what Trojan fans can expect.
  • Plus plenty more!
