The War Room

Our pre Trojan Huddle USCFootball.com War Room is one of our biggest ever.

We get the inside scoop from new special teams coordinator Brian Schneider and breakdown some of the less publicized position battles.

We also debunk a negative recruiting rumor and talk about the flurry of scholarship offers handed out during the May Evaluation Period.

More details of what is inside:

  • Tight end is a real position of need for the Trojans, and two of the best in the country have already committed to play for Pete Carroll. With two more scholarship offers out there, how many more will USC bring in and is a position switch possible?

  • While the calendar doesn't say "May" quite yet, the May Evaluation Period is already in full swing. The Trojans have already extended seven scholarship offers and expect that number to balloon as the coaches hit the road and evaluate more prospects in person. We break down who was offered and what they bring to the table in the War Room.

  • There have been some false rumors surrounding the academic status of one of USC's "largest" recruits. We break down what those rumors suggested and what the real story is on the 6-foot-7, 335-pound DT Dak Smith.

  • The hiring of special teams coordinator Brian Schneider could be one of the most significant additions to the staff since Pete Carroll's arrival. We talked with coach Schneider about several special teams topics specifically for the USCFootball.com War Room.

  • At quarterback the battle is over, for now at least. But several other position battles are still in the works and we break down what they are and which players have helped their cause heading into the Trojan Huddle.

  • What does newly anointed starting quarterback Aaron Corp think about the play calling of Jeremy Bates so far?

  • Speaking of Corp, one star receiver shares why he thinks Corp's mobility makes things easier on the wide outs.

  • It is safe to say, the recent resurgence of the defensive line is no coincidence, new DL coach Jethro Franklin has a lot to do with it.

  • With spring all but over, which players have seen their stock rising and which have seen it fall? We go into the details in the War Room.


  • Plus plenty more!
