So while we were all enjoying USC's big win over Ohio State Saturday it wasn't all fun and games for some at USC as there was work to be done.
Give USC basketball coach Tim Floyd credit for making the most of a big event. According to Hoop Scoop Online, the Trojans had 13 quality players - including 6-10 junior Jeremy Tyler of San Diego High, 6-9 junior Joshua Smith from Seattle Garfield, 6-8 Ricardo Sidney of Los Angeles, 6-7 Jordan Hamilton of Comton, Calif. Dominguez, guard Kenny Boynton of Plantation, Fla. Heritage, 6-8 Tyler Honeycutt of Sylmar, Calif. and 6-7 Noel Johnson, Cheese Johnson’s son from Fayetteville, Ga.- on campus for USC’s big football game against Ohio State at the Coliseum. Boynton, Johnson and Honeycutt were all making official visits.
This is one area where SC has always been able to separate themselves from the supposed monopoly breakers from accross town.
Here is a list of the football recruits.
QB Matt Barkley, Mater Dei
CB Tevin McDonald, Edison (Fresno) *
TE Morrell Presley, Carson
ATH Adam Hall, Palo Verde (AZ)

DB Torin Harris, Palo Verde (NV)
DB Sean Parker, Narbonne *

* = underclassman
And from what I am reading that is just a partial list. LB Vontaze Burfict from Centennial (Corona) was there as was S Byron Moore from Narbonne. SC really pulled out all the stopps as everyon wanted to be at this game.
How many of those guys do you think will commit? I would say a good portion of them.
Keep feeding the machine baby!!
