After a brief Hawaiian hiatus the USCFootball.com War Room is back with our biggest installment of the year.
We have lots of recruiting updates including the Serra super safety/receiver duo of Marqise Lee and George Farmer. We also go deeper into USC's tackling woes and what they are doing to fix it and weigh in on the fall from grace of Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush.
More details of what is inside:
Marqise Lee and George Farmer are two-sport state champions at Serra High School and two of the hottest prospects on the West Coast. We stopped by Serra on Thursday to get the scoop on their recruitment including Lee latest offers from USC and UCLA and a potential package deal for the safety/receiver combo.
Palo Alto (Calif.) running back and Stanford commit Amir Carlisle will be on the USC campus when the Cardinal plays UCLA at the Rose Bowl on Saturday. Do the Trojans have a shot at the four-star running back and which player is Carlisle looking forward to seeing play the most?
Speaking of USC and UCLA, with both teams playing home games this weekend, they will be competing against each other for unofficial visits from local prospects. More on some of the big names that could go either way in the War Room.

Plus plenty more!
