  • Has Clay Helton grown as a head coach? Take a look at how his approach to recruiting has changed from 2016 to 2017 to get your answer.
  • The Trojans are being more selective with scholarship offers, focusing on a couple out of state areas of the country during this May Evaluation Period.
  • A very in-depth look at how USC’s scholarship offer plan went for the class of 2017, leading to a top-5 class in February.
  • More notes on the proposed Coliseum renovations and the impact on donors and season ticket holders.
  • Damien Mama left early for the NFL and went undrafted, something he was warned about before making his decision.
