After signing few offensive linemen for a couple signing periods, USC has taken three in the past week.
USC obviously wants to sign as many offensive linemen as possible. And it can always drop someone if it doesn’t want them later.
But the Trojans have not had a four-star offensive lineman in more than a year. They haven’t had a five-star commit since 2010.
Linemen do develop. But not at USC recently. Clay Helton would argue they need depth so the rankings are not as important. It would be nice to see some of the best linemen in the West go to USC, though, because every year it seems like the offensive line is a team weakness.
