    FB:USC off to a good start in 09 recruiting

    After having a "down year" in FB recruiting in 2008 (finished 7th in the publication I saw), USC appears to be off to a strong start for 2009. According to this article, USC has received verbals from 7 of the top 100 players (as ranked by Rivals) already for 2009.

    The class is highlighted by the #1 player in 09, who comes from the QB producing Mater Dei High School, a Catholic school in Santa Ana.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/11/sp...ts&oref=slogin

    It's safe to say that USC is 75% done with their recruiting (other than staying in touch) by mid summer IMO.

    I bet they still lose to an underdog. I always hated the Trojans, with their wee-beady eyes and that smug look on their face!

    How can you hate Trojans? They're a #1 brand...

    The kid in the article is a "cross between Montana and Brady"? Um, he is only seventeen mabey they should let him graduate high school before annointing him the next great one.

    jcats - look at his stats and the records he will most likely break next year ... not to mention the fact that he comes from a qb factory school at mater dei .... i'm not trying to argue with what your saying but the numbers dont lie ...

    i was not trying to say that he was not a great qb(he is obviously that), just pointing out that is some pretty lofty company.

    Why not go to USC. You are in Southern Cali with some of the hottest women around, plus all the extra "benefits" of being a USC student, like free NBA tickets and money from agents, etc. That's the good life!!

    Interesting that a high school whose name means "Mother of God" produces such god-like football players. Coincidence?

    The thing is, that kid won't play for a couple of years since they have Sanchez and Mustain.

    And the rich get richer...


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
