LOS ANGELES -- A loaded field of prospects converged on the USC campus on Wednesday for the first day of the Rising Stars Camp -- a fact that had to please first-year Trojans head coach Steve Sarkisian and staff.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Cornerback Tony Brown, No. 11 in the ESPN 300 and the No. 2 prospect in Texas, suffered an injury to his left shoulder on Tuesday and likely will not play in the Under Armour All-America Game.

As expected, Day 2 at the Under Armour All-America practices were smoother, more concise and much more productive. The players are now starting to think less and play more.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- One thing is for sure for all the 2014 Under Armour All-Americans: This isn’t high school anymore. Day 1 is about gauging the competition.
With the all-star games approaching fast, here's a look at four USC recruits to keep tabs on at each event:Under Armour All-America Game, Thurs., Jan.
A recent string of commitments heading into the dead period has left USC with only five remaining slots in its 2014 recruiting class. The Trojans have 19 total spots to use, as long as four of them are mid-year enrollees.
Rivalry weekend brought plenty of excitement to the Pac-12, but it didn’t produce much recruiting activity aside from a few official visits. There were plenty of interested eyes across the West region, though, as UCLA knocked off USC for the second consecutive season, Arizona State reclaimed the Territorial Cup, and Oregon and Washington held off their in-state rivals.
The Early Offer is RecruitingNation's latest feature, giving you a daily dose of recruiting in the mornings. Today's offerings: No team in America is more on fire than the Alabama Crimson Tide and they’re not done yet; UCLA gets two major DB commits and make an impression with new uniforms, and juco linebacker Errol Clarke II is quickly becoming a wanted man with Big 12 and SEC coaches.
Things were much quieter for USC recruiting this July than they were in the same month last year, when the Trojans landed verbal commitments from eight highly touted prospects to bring their total to a whopping 18 before the start of the high school season.
Tom Luginbill breaks down the significant movers in the ESPN 300 rankings, including a new player in the top three, players who made massive jumps further down in the rankings and new positional No.
This year’s edition of The Opening in Beaverton, Oregon featured an absolutely phenomenal collection of prospects with off-the-charts talent -- a number of which currently sit high atop the wish list of the USC coaching staff.
BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Even with dynamic two-way athletes Michiah Quick (Fresno, Calif./Central) and John “JuJu” Smith (Long Beach, Calif./Poly) lining up with the offense Monday in the first day of The Opening, the defensive backs were a standout group as it relates to USC recruiting.

The Opening, presented by Nike, will feature 162 of the best high school football players in the country. The event, which will include linemen, 7-on-7 and SPARQ testing competitions, is set to run from June 30 to July 3 at the Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Ore.
The 2014 recruiting cycle is more than four months old, which means USC’s board is taking shape as the summer approaches. With up to 20 available scholarships, the Trojans will look to add to the six defensive prospects they signed in the previous cycle.
Watching ESPN Watch List cornerback Tony Brown (Beaumont, Texas/Ozen) compete is almost like watching a one-man show. No matter what he does, there’s the understood notion that he’s going to excel.
