USC linebackers coach Johnny Nansen named sixth-best recruiter by CBS

According to a ranking from Barton Simmons of CBS Sports, USC linebackers coach Johnny Nansen is the sixth-best recruiter in the nation.

From CBS Sports:

In his first two years at USC, Nansen coached running backs. He’s coached linebackers the last two seasons and he made sure that this year’s recruiting class beefed up that room.  Powered by a strong linebacker year out west, Nansen may have pulled together the best class at the position in the country. Five-star linebacker  Palaie Gaoteote, four-star linebackers  Kana’i Mauga and  Solomon Tuliaupupu and former Oregon commit  Eli’Jah Winston are all guys he ran point on in bringing to his unit. He’s also helping the rest of the defense with speedy edge rusher  Abdul-Malik McClain and dynamic safety  Talanoa Hufanga. Nansen was outstanding recruiting the Polynesian community and that success should pay further dividends in future recruiting classes.

Nansen was previously rated as the Pac-12’s best recruiter, and is the highest-ranked Pac-12 coach on this list.
