The safety position is loaded with talent in California's Class of 2013, and the USC Trojans stepped forward with an offer to one of the state's best on Monday evening. The Trojans have been slow to hand out offers to junior prospects due to scholarship restrictions, so Max Redfield (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) was taken aback by the offer.

"I called Coach O (Ed Orgeron), and when we were talking, he came out with it," Redfield said. "He said, 'We'd like to offer you a scholarship to the University of Southern California.' "

Redfield said he was surprised and excited by the news and couldn't hide those emotions.
