Lane Kiffin officially announced the signing of the seven early entrants for the 2013 football recruiting class headlined by the USA Today National Offensive Player of the Year QB Max Browne and Defensive Player of the Year DB Su'a Cravens.  The group includes four 5-star prospects and three 4-star prospects as ranked by

"We are excited to welcome these student-athletes to USC and have them get a jump on preparing for the 2013 season," said Kiffin.  "I can't imagine a better collection of players to ever have joined a program mid-year.  It speaks volumes of the power of USC that four of the best players from the state of California and a trio of five-star out-of-state players chose to come here."

It looks like we have a bright future I just hope coach kiffin gets it together.

Will this help USC to have a season with more than 7 wins? Or help them beat Georgia Tech? Maybe.

Fight on men! We can't wait to see you recruits that aren't sure if u want to be a part of this group...better think twice. This team is going to be special.

i thought we were going to get a big name defensive coordinator
this guy will not help us stop Pac 12 opponents (he has not done it before)I think Kiffin does not want to be overcoached by assistants

These are recruits who get it.

There are only a handful of schools that have top notch athletics, top academic rankings and powerful/connected alumni orgs: USC, Stanford, Duke, Notre Dame, UCLA, etc

It much more important to choose a school that might get you in professional sports, but will for sure get you a job upon graduation, unlike Alabama, Kentucky, and other SEC loser schools. So if a recruit de-commits to USC, then let em go, because they and their parents are intellectually challenged

Mike , are you kidding me ?? the DC has never stopped PAC 12 opponents before? Cal had the #1 Defense two years in a row under pendergast, 2010 and 2011, the dropped in 2012 due to graduation and youth. The Bears held Oregon to 315 total yard and 15 total points in 2011. the only team to do so. He understands Spread and Read Option offenses. He just didnt have the kids to stop it last season, but he did successfully in 09 and 10.

Well Mike, I beg to disagree. This coach that you are not giving props to has a D that will not only handle pac 12 opponents, he will provide a great deal of enthusiasm, speed, athleticism to a team that has a multitude of talent. Give the guy a chance, he will make the difference. If not, most folks will get what they want, a new head coach.
