USC football recruiting: Trojans hope to make moves in early signing period

Fresh off a Pac-12 championship and a Cotton Bowl bid, USC’s momentum keeps on chugging along.

The Trojans are always a player for blue-chip prospects from California. In 2017, they had the nation’s No. 4 class and are making progress with the 2018 class. However, with Chip Kelly now on his way to UCLA, the Trojans will have to compete with an elite head coach in their own city. With the early signing period set for next week, from Dec. 20-22, the Trojans are hoping to sign some of their top committed targets.

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

Where USC’s class ranks

The Trojans  have 11 commitments from one 5-star recruit, eight 4-stars and two 3-stars. USC’s 2018 class is ranked  No. 28 in the country and  No. 4 in the Pac-12, according to 247Sports composite rankings.  The Trojans have an average commit rating of 92.11, which ranks No. 1 in the conference and fourth in the country.
