Camren McDonald-USC-USC Trojans-USC recruiting

After winning the Rose Bowl in dramatic fashion last season, optimism was high for USC to return to prominence as a national powerhouse program. While results this year have led to falling short of preseason expectations, that hasn’t slowed down USC on the recruiting trail.

The Trojans are always a player for blue-chip prospects from California. In 2017, they had the nation’s No. 4 class and are already making progress for the 2018 class.

Here’s an update on where things stand for the Class of 2018:

Where USC’s class ranks

The Trojans currently have 11 commitments, one 5-star recruit, seven 4-stars and three 3-stars. USC’s 2018 class is currently ranked No. 22 in the country and No. 3 in the Pac-12, according to 247Sports composite rankings. However, the Trojans have an average commit rating of 91.81, which ranks fifth in the country and is tops in the conference.
