The USC Trojans are still dealing with NCAA sanctions stemming from the Reggie Bush era, one of which is a limited number of scholarships. Lane Kiffin and his coaching staff had a total of 18 scholarships to hand out, and they've had no trouble luring the nation's best talent to SoCal.
On Sunday, the Trojans received a commitment to complete their class for 2013.
Torrodney Prevot, a four-star defensive end out of Houston, committed to the Trojans over most major programs in the country. He had offers from LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas, among others, but he felt USC was the place for him. Prevot is ranked as the 74th overall prospect in the country and is the fifth-best DE, according to Rivals.
His commitment gives Southern Cal their limit of 18 for this class. There is always a chance a player decommits and opens up a spot, but that seems unlikely. USC has now secured a pledge from three 5-star and fifteen 4-star players. Not too bad for a program that was supposedly rebuilding a couple of years ago.
