Recruiting notebook: Hutchings ready 

April, 9, 2013
Soon-to-be USC linebacker Michael Hutchings (Concord, Calif./De La Salle) could have taken a much-deserved vacation, but instead used his spring break trip to Los Angeles over the weekend to size up the competition.

The Northern California-based prospect had visited the USC campus a handful of times, but not since national signing day. He attended Thursday’s practice and Saturday’s scrimmage at the Coliseum.

“It was more serious,” Hutchings said. “Now I’m trying to learn and pick up things as fast as I can.”
