Recruiting Catch-Up

Recruiting Catch-Up gives Trojan fans a one-stop-shop for all the recruiting news over the past week. Included in this week's edition, are updates on Matt Kalil, Chris Galippo, Broderick Green, Jahvid Best, Joe McKnight, Darrell Scott, and more.

Never Too Early

The Trojans received their second commitment for the class of 2008 this past Monday when offensive tackle Matt Kalil out of Servite HS verbally committed. Kalil is the third member of a talented Servite team to commit to the Trojans, and the second for the class of 2008. Click the following link to read up on what Kalil had to say about his recent commitment to USC.

Servite Sights and Sounds

WeAreSC was at a recent Servite Friars game to get video footage of Trojan recruits Chris Galippo and Matt Kalil as well as interviews with those two and fellow USC commit D.J. Shoemate. The following is a link to the video and interviews done following the Servite victory over St. Augustine HS.

Serving It Up

Jordan Campbell of Norco HS has been putting up some pretty impressive stats throughout his career, but Friday night's game against Bloomington was one of his best. Campbell finished the night with thirteen solo tackles (Of which 8 were tackles for loss), seven assisted tackles, two quarterback hurries, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery. Norco prevailed over Bloomington 28-20.

Green It Is

Broderick Green can not be labeled as a one dimensional player; yet a "Jack of all trades." Green rushed for 123 yards on 20 carries, picking up two touchdowns along the way. Green also had 4 receptions for 49 yards in the victory over White Hall.

Dazzling the Crowd

There is a reason why junior running back Darrell Scott of Moorpark HS has an SC offer, and Friday night showed why. Scott carried the ball 33 times for 277 yards and 4 touchdowns in Moorpark's 38-24 victory over Thousand Oaks.

McKnight Shows Up

Running back prospect Joe McKnight of John Curtis HS (La.) had another big game Friday night against Choctawhatchee. McKnight rushed the ball 7 times for 31 yards in the 41-3 victory. McKnight had two touchdowns on the night; a 52 touchdown reception and a 9 yard touchdown run.

Enough Said

Of all the prospects included in the Recruiting Catch-Up, I think it is fair to say that Jahvid Best is the most consistent. Best puts up mind boggling numbers week in and week out, and Friday night was no exception. Best carried the ball 34 times for 314 yards and 5 touchdowns in the 38-23 victory over Piedmont. Best scored on runs of 45, 16, 25, 4, and 5 yards during the victory, and continues to show why he is so heavily recruited.

DaJohn Makes Trip to the Coliseum

Five-star defensive tackle prospect DaJohn Harris out of Serra HS took in Saturday's game against the Washington Huskies, and left very impressed. Harris, who has had SC at the top of his list for some time, had this to say about his experience at the Coliseum.

Oaks Pitches Shut-Out

In what was seen as Oaks Christian's last real test before league play, the Lions shut out visiting Diamond Bar 57-0. Notre Dame bound QB Jimmy Clausen was 8-10 on the night, throwing for 174 yards and 4 touchdowns. Trojan commitment Marc Tyler was pretty well contained in the first half, but opened up the second half with a 67 yard touchdown run. Tyler finished the night with 10 rushed for 84 yards and a touchdown. Defensive back Anthony Gildon had an interception in the game, making his total 6 interceptions on the year throughout five games. The Lions will open up league play Friday night as they host visiting Carpenteria. The following is a link to an article done on defensive back Anthony Gildon and his recent USC offer.
