The USC Trojans are working with a limited number of scholarships for their 2013 recruiting class, but that has not stopped head coach Lane Kiffin from luring some of the nation's best talent to his program. According to various reports on Sunday afternoon, four-star wide receiver Steven Mitchell has committed to USC.
He had offers from schools all over the country, including ones from Nebraska, Texas A&M, UCLA and Arizona.

According to Rivals, Mitchell is the eighth-best wide receiver in his class and is ranked No. 63 on their top-100 list.
Mitchell is a bit undersized at 5'11 and 170lbs, but his 4.5 speed on the 40-yard dash indicates the Trojans are going to be adding a very speedy receiver to their roster in 2013. He also has a 3.6 GPA in school, which is always nice when securing the commitment from a talented and high-profile player.
USC now has nine players committed for next year's class, all of which are considered four- or five-star recruits, including No. 1 quarterback Max Browne. Not too bad for a program dealing with scholarship restrictions.
Here is a full highlight reel of Mitchell in action as a junior.
