The USC Trojans jumped into the mix for two defensive gems in the class of 2013, offering scholarships to outside linebacker E.J. Levenberry (Woodbridge, Va./C.D. Hylton) and defensive tackle Montravius Adams (Vienna, Ga./Dooly County), according to ESPN's Dave Hooker and Jamie Newberg.

Levenberry and Adams will be two of the more highly recruited players at their position, so it is no surprise to see the USC coaches extend these early offers.

California is usually light on pure defensive tackles, so seeing early offers head out into SEC territory is par for the course. The defensive tackle spot is as important as any position in the 2013 class for the Trojans, and with early playing time to offer under position coach Ed Orgeron, expect USC to make a hard run at some of the top talents in the country.
