Presenting the War Room

In our St. Patrick’s Day edition of the War Room we have the inside scoop on USC recruiting, a potential new candidate to join the USC support staff and plenty more.

More details of what is inside:

  • An inside look at how USC is recruiting the linebacker position and what it means when a great prospect doesn’t get a scholarship offer.
  • It could be a cross-town battle when it comes to the recruitment of Lancaster (Calif.) four-star athlete Devon Williams.
  • A pair of underclassmen defensive tackles dominated over the weekend at The Opening Los Angeles and both are very high on the Trojans.
  • What we are hearing on the recruitment of Murrieta (Calif.) four-star wide receiver Marquis Spiker.
  • A new name we are hearing regarding USC’s search to hire more recruiting support staff.
  • Football isn’t always first, and former safety John Plattenburg showed why when he decided to retire due to concussions.
  • Five-star QB and USC commit Matt Corral is now at Long Beach Poly and it is already having a positive impact on his game.
  • The NCAA continues to play “four-corners” when it comes to the Todd McNair lawsuit.
  • Plus plenty more!
