The USC hosted one of the biggest recruiting weekend of the season with recruits from all over the country descending on Los Angeles as Steve Sarkisian and his staff barrels towards signing day.
Recruits on official visits included current commits, big-time targets and recruits to the competition, while plenty of players joined in the festivities on unofficial visits. As is usual in the recruiting process these day, interested parties got glimpses of the process on social media.
