Presenting the War Room

This week in the War Room we discuss some early recruiting drama for the class of 2018, recruits becoming recruiters and a former Trojan football player is fighting for the heavyweight championship this weekend.

More details of what is inside:

  • Silent commits? Who doesn’t love talking about silent commits!
  • Speaking of commits, which of USC’s class of 2018 pledges are wavering?
  • The latest we are hearing on a potential graduate transfer into the Trojan football program.
  • The Trojans already had one commit that would act as a recruiter, quarterback Matt Corral. And now that Palaie Gaoteote has pledged his services, Clay Helton has an ally on the defensive side of the ball as well.
  • The more we hear about Indian running backs coach Deland McCullough the more we like the pending hire.
  • Former USC QB Mitch Mustain has an interesting take on new Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin.
  • Plus plenty more!
