USC football’s support staff upgrades continued on Wednesday with the addition of two LSU video producers.

Over half a year since taking over as athletic director, Mike Bohn continues to prove his willingness to upgrade USC football’s support staff in big ways.

On Tuesday, that meant poaching two of the hottest figures in college video production.

The Trojans completed the hiring of Jacob Brown and Will Stout, who were part of the video team that gained fame during the 2019 season for producing some of the most HYPE hype videos on the internet for the LSU Tigers.

Here’s an example of their video ahead of the national championship game…

Hype videos don’t equal wins, but they certainly can help on the recruiting front.

More importantly, USC making a savvy move by going out and getting the best of the best on the video front shows just how serious the Trojans are about elevating every aspect of the football program.

If Bohn and his athletic department weren’t committed to putting USC in the best position to win, they wouldn’t be out there paying the money to increase the size and scope of their support staff.

USC’s staff was certainly excited about the new additions. From coaches to recruiters, the Trojans were eager to welcome the two new faces on Twitter.

The move also didn’t escape the notice of people connected to the high school recruiting scene.

Former Trojan running back Stafon Johnson, now the head coach at Dorsey High School:

USC now has a support staff to compete with the big boys on the national scale.

The next step is proving they have the chops on the football field to go toe-to-toe with national title contenders.
