Should Lane Kiffin have signed three more players or keep the scholarships for midyear recruits?

DeVante Wilson is not included in the recruiting services with the EE’s or February signees. Where does he fit in as a recruit?
A: He was included in USC’s official list of early enrollees. He is still recovering from knee surgery so I do not expect much from him next season.

Scott,do you think Lane Kiffin make a huge mistake by not formulating a backup plan to settle for some of the decent 3 star recruits that were available this year after he whiffed on five stars Peat, Murphy and Shittu? He said he would save the scholies for next year but what will we do if there are no quality offensive and defensive linemen available as EEs next year?
A: I suspect he will find some JC players to sign but recent history suggests they will not be impact players. It probably would be better if he had signed a couple more high school players. I say this because last year Kiffin took recruits like Charles Burks because he wanted underrated prospects that would end up going to other Pac-12 schools and hurting USC. So I think it would pay off to do the same thing after losing on the five stars.
