Who is getting Scout.com's Five-Star players?

Maybe it doesn't mean anything decisive, but in going through the list of players in Scout.com's Top 100, we noticed a pattern. Such as in the old phrase, ``Round up the usual suspects.''

The same schools are doing well in recruiting for the 2010 class as we usually have found in the past. Take players who have been designated as five-star prospects by Scout.com.

Tennessee leads the way with commitments from four five-star players (hey, aren't the Vols coached by USC's former recruiting coordinator, Lane Kiffin?). USC and Penn State follow with three apiece, and Alabama, Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia and Texas A&M each have two.

There's still a batch of uncommitted five-star players out there, and you can expect the Trojans to be in there until the end on three or four, like George Uko, Jackson Jeffcoat, Ronald Powell, Sharrif Floyd, Seantrel Henderson, Lache Seastrunk, Jordan Hicks and Jeff Luc. We may have left some out, but USC does have a very good shot at signing three or four of the players listed above.

Scout.com's team rankings has USC in its 12th position, but the Trojans lead the way with Texas, Tennessee and Georgia in Top 100 players committed to them. Each has five. Stanford, which has been ranked ahead of USC since team postings began, has no Scout.com Top 100 performers.
