Recruiting: 2013 USC Signing Day Tracker


LOI Tracker | Big Board | Twitter

Football recruiting is ever-changing. Last summer, it looked as though Lane Kiffin was assembling a world class bunch of talent in the Class of 2013. The Trojans were a unanimous No. 1 with 18 commitments at one point, including six five-star players and a recruiting class that had an astronomical average star rating. Since then, things have taken place.

Silas Redd transferred to USC taking away an initial scholarship. Max Redfield was wowed by a trip to Notre Dame and de-committed. The Trojans had a 7-5 record including losses to UCLA and Notre Dame to end the season. Eddie Vanderdoes opened up his recruting. USC laid an egg in the Sun Bowl. Eldridge Massington and Kylie Fitts had their scholarships deferred from early enrollee status causing them to de-commit. Sebastian LaRue surrendered the scholarship he was squatting. Jason Hatcher got confused. Jalen Ramsey and Torrodney Ramsey found greener pastures.

Overall, eight of USC’s 18 commits have de-committed, with another, tackle Nico Falah, rumored to make it an exact half.

Now, there’s been victories for USC along the way. Ty Isaac enters Signing Day securely committed to the Trojans despite being forced to defer his enrollment and runs from Michigan and Notre Dame. And there’s five-star safety Leon McQuay III that committed to USC at the Under Armour All-American Game to wrap up arguably the most talented early enrollee class in college football history.

Four five-star recruits including the top quarterback in the nation are already on campus, but who will join them? Who will be Trojans and who will find their heart pumping a different shade of red?

Today’s the day the movie gets cast, though the script will has yet to be written. Today is Signing Day.
