The 2014 USC recruiting class is officially in the books.

Today, there are 19 new Trojans ready to roam the halls of the John McKay center: two 5-stars, nine 4-stars, eight 3-stars.

Just four signees hail from out of state, while 15 are California boys. Yesterday defensive backs coach Keith Heyward told fans the Trojans want to “own all of California.” Looks like he’s getting his wish.

Steve Sarkisian said his targets for this class were offensive line and skill players at corner and wide receiver. So it should come as no surprise that USC picked up five offensive linemen and eight players who fit into the categories of athlete, receiver or defensive back. Half of those players will likely see time on both sides of the ball.

The Trojans also nabbed four defensive linemen, one quarterback and one tight end.

The class as a whole earned USC the #10 rank in the nation according to Rivals and Scout. 247Sports slotted the Trojans at #11, while ESPN closed out at #14. In all those recruiting service class rankings USC was the top-rated Pac-12 team.
