Our Wednesday list of 2013 prospects offered scholarships by USC included four players from Georgia. But there is now a fifth: Tailback Alvin Kamara of Norcross, Ga.
USC is doing a banner job giving away bobbleheads this year. The first 1,500 fans at Saturday’s women’s basketball game receive a Michael Cooper bobblehead. Unlike the original, the bobblehead does not moonlight for Channel 7, lose to Nikki Caldwell or fail to make the NCAA Tournament.
USC officially announced the hiring of wide receivers coach Tee Martin. The full press release is after the jump:
“We are extremely fortunate to make Tee Martin the final addition to our coaching staff,” said Lane Kiffin. “Not only does he bring instant credibility as a national championship quarterback, but he has grown into a nationally-recognized coach and recruiter. We look forward to him taking our record-breaking receivers to an even higher level.”
Here’s a brief article on Matt Kalil’s session with the media at the NFL combine.

USC was one four Pac-12 schools (Arizona, Cal, Colorado) that voted in favor of an override of proposal to offer athletes multi-year scholarships. Perhaps the 15-scholarship limit influenced USC’s vote.
When USC coach Kevin O’Neill was in Chicago last weekend, he saw small forward Jabari Parker, rated the No. 2 player in the nation for 2013 by Rivals.com.
Just a day before Lane Kiffin said he patched things up with Urban Meyer, a Pac-12 coach told me Meyer was probably the most arrogant coach he knew based on personal dealings with him.
Which is precisely why Kiffin and Meyer clashed in the SEC. Kiffin went out of his way to be arrogant and Meyer already owned that dept. (along with Nick Saban). But Kiffin is trying to be conciliatory at USC, so it is time to patch things up.
At least until USC and Ohio State go down to the wire on the same recruit.
