Am I reading correctly that USC signed just 12 recruits today? That they've signed just 28 recruits over the last two recruiting cycles? Anyone follow USC closely enough to confirm those numbers?
That is going to be SUPER BRUTAL on their player development moving forward. I really don't see how Kiffin keeps his job, and I'm not convinced it's going to be all that attractive when he leaves. They might be looking at a nasty stretch of football, especially with UCLA, Stanford, Oregon (and even Boise State and Washington to lesser degrees) offering much better options currently. I'm not saying it's going to be as ugly as Notre Dame's 1994-2010 stretch was, but I think they're going to be hurting out west. That lost depth is going to be tough to recover from.
i had to read that twice because it sounds AMAZING!

That is correct
Sounds about right. The really incredible thing is that despite how much their class fell apart... They still finished with the highest star ranking per player in rivals history.
Incredible quality but the quantity will come back to hurt them for years
I read USC is currently sitting on 73 scholarship players. That is like penalizing yourself 2 more scholarships above the NCAA sanctions, of 75. Of course they cane pick those up in EE's next year....not well played, hurting for sure.

I am absurdly happy over USC's misfortunes...but I am still amazed at this: They signed 13 players, but 5 of those 13 were 5star guys. That is an amazing ratio, and no team has signed 5 5stars before. In the end they will be like us the past 10 years: some really good players surrounded by many that are not good enough to beat high quality teams. How very very sad for the bandwagon fans of SC.
