No. 1 ILB Reuben Foster has voiced his desire to play with at least one of his SEC-bound friends next season.

Here’s a position-by-position look at the top performers from the 2012 USC Rising Stars Camp:

Quarterback: Johnny Stanton (Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif./Santa Margarita) led the way for the class of 2013 group as the leader of the state champion Eagles team took his shot at performing in front of the USC coaches. The Trojans already have one quarterback commit in this class but a guy like Stanton could either be a multi-position option or could also be a second QB for the class if the coaches decide to go that route after the recent departure of Jesse Scroggins.

The underclass group had several talented players. The best of the bunch was Kyle Allen from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Desert Mountain, a 2014 prospect who already holds offers from schools such as Oklahoma State, UCLA and in-state programs Arizona and Arizona State. Another 2014 recruit in attendance was Keller Chryst from Palo Alto (Calif.) Palo Alto. The class of 2015 was represented well by Brady White from Newhall (Calif.) Hart.

The first day of the USC Rising Stars Camp is in the books and, as expected, there was plenty of elite talent on display.

The marquee group was the secondary with a pair of top safety recruits in USC verbal Su'a Cravens (Murrieta, Calif./Vista Murrieta) and Max Redfield (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo). Cravens posted a Twitter update (@CravenTDs_21) after the camp which said, “Sky patrol was on lock today at the SC camp! Me and Max Redfield was goin to work!”

Another player with a USC offer, cornerback Jalen Ramsey (Brentwood, Tenn./Brentwood Academy) made a return visit to the USC campus for the camp after having already taken an unofficial visit earlier this month. Encino (Calif.) Crespi safety Tyler Foreman was also in attendance.
