Presenting the War Room

The final big recruiting weekend is upon us and the War Room has the latest on all things USC football recruiting as we are now just five days away from National Letter of Intent Day.

More details of what is inside:

  • Pheonix (Ariz.) four-star safety Isaiah Pola-Mao has an early morning announcement that USC fans should enjoy.
  • Two highly ranked local prospects will be on official visits to USC this weekend and the Trojans look good for both of them.
  • The latest on Independence (Ore.) four-star defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu – his potential enrollment plus squashing a rumor.
  • Mom could play a big factor in the recruitment of South Jordan (Utah) five-star defensive tackle Jay Tufele.
  • After de-committing this week, where does USC stand with Pasadena (Calif.) four-star cornerback Elijah Blades?
  • USC had an ally to help flip the commitment of Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O’Dowd cornerback Je’Quari Godfrey.
  • Plus plenty more!
