Presenting the War Room

Will this be a December to remember for the USC Trojans who anxiously await their bowl fate? In the War Room we discuss this, the latest on USC recruiting, superstar Adoree’ Jackson, the coaching carousel’s potential impact on USC and a lot more.

More details of what is inside:

  • Last weekend was a huge one for USC recruiting. This weekend is much more low key, but an important five-star prospect will be on campus.
  • Despite the de-commitments of some defensive back prospects, USC’s secondary class is shaping up really well at this point.
  • The coaching carousel isn’t hitting the Pac-12 hard this year (at least so far) but it could have a significant impact on USC recruiting.
  • Are the USC players putting pressure on Adoree’ Jackson and Juju Smith-Schuster to stay for their senior seasons?
  • Will there be any shakeup among the USC assistant coaches this offseason?
  • In never rains in Southern California, right? Well it did against Notre Dame and the team fed off of it.
  • A special tribute to former USC tailback Joe McKnight who was senselessly murdered on Thursday.
  • Plus plenty more!
