Windward of Los Angeles has never really been known as a football hot bed but two players picked up offers from USC. Sophomore linebacker Breland Brandt was offered today. Offensive lineman Roy Hemsley was previously offered.
The Trojans also offered Loyola High junior defensive end Christian Rector.
