With Signing Day on Wednesday, USC’s recruiting class is ranked No. 8 by Rivals.
It’s obvious USC’s recruiting improved with its new staff (Donte Williams).
Maybe an interesting question is whether USC actually was aided in recruiting by the pandemic?

This is not to say recruiting relied on these once-in-a-100-years-pandemic, but it would not be a stretch to say the Trojans benefitted at least a little bit.
- USC, with its five new strength coaches, started workouts this week.
- A database has been started for former USC players to update their lives and whereabouts. Here is the link.
