Receiver recruiting bar is high 

April, 17, 2012
The standard for wide receiver recruiting at USC is pretty high these days and that is evidenced by the presence of four in-state wide receivers ranked in the ESPN 150, none of whom has a Trojans offer.

The Trojans are being selective at this spot not only because of the depth at receiver on the roster right now, but also due to the reduced scholarship numbers. It’s not like USC hasn’t offered any receivers in this class (five out-of-state WRs in the ESPN 150 have reported offers from the Trojans) but it hasn’t stepped forward yet with the local players.

That situation could easily change after the Rising Stars Camp in June, an event that the USC coaches encourage for recruits looking for a Trojans offer due to the opportunity to evaluate them in person. However, these local receivers are not sitting around without other schools showing interest in them, in fact the list of out-of-state schools with offers is impressive.
