Brady (Reading, Pa.): With Su'a Cravens' commitment and our chances looking good for getting either Max Redfield, Priest Willis, or Tahaan Goodman for the other safety spot, what do you think is a bigger need, CB Vernon Hargreaves or Mackensie Alexander, or DL recruits like Eddie Vanderdoes, Robert Nkemdiche, Joe Mathis or Montravius Adams?
I’ll go with the defensive linemen. I think the secondary spots are going to take care of themselves. There are several very good prospects out there this year -- such as the ones you have named -- but the d-line recruits are a little tougher to come by. The Trojans need to come away with at least two more big bodies along the line to go along with Kenny Bigelow and Kylie Fitts. Don’t forget about Elijah Qualls from Petaluma (Calif.) Case Grande. He has a USC offer and could fit nicely at the nose tackle position.
