WeAreSC recruiting mailbag

WeAreSC recruiting reporter Blair Angulo answers reader questions in his mailbag every week. Have a USC recruiting question of your own? Submit it via Twitter @WeAreSCstaff or @bangulo.

@360KravPortland: What's the word on the recruits that visited ND last week? A lackluster performance on both ends couldn't have helped either team.

WeAreSC: Team performance isn't a major factor for USC recruits right now, especially with the coaching situation unsettled. Sure, positive on-field results would boost recruiting, but much of it is moot until the uncertainty evaporates. Neither USC or Notre Dame were particularly sharp last week with the likes of John "JuJu" Smith (Long Beach, Calif./Poly) and Damien Mama (Bellflower, Calif./St. John Bosco) in attendance, but recruits weren't there with the sole purpose of seeing who would win or lose.
