With eight commitments for 2015, USC currently has two quarterbacks, two defensive linemen and two offensive linemen. But if you look to 2016, many of the Trojans’ scholarship offers are for wide receivers and linebackers.
Obviously, Steve Sarkisian and Co. believe those are the positions of need. Ed Orgeron felt linebacker was a problem area after he took over from Lane Kiffin and started taking commitments immediately.
I’m guessing offensive linemen will also remain a priority even with the group USC brings in this year. Usually only 1-2 develop and you can never have enough.
