ESPN 150 targets: USC 

April, 18, 2013
With today's release of the ESPN 150, here's a look at 10 of USC's top targets in the 2014 class.

1. CB Adoree’ Jackson (Gardena, Calif./Serra)
5-foot-11, 183 pounds
ESPN 150 Rank: 5

Why they want him: There are concerns over USC’s depth at cornerback, and Jackson would vie for immediate playing time there. He’s also a dynamic playmaker on special teams, which the Trojans would need if Marqise Lee were to leave early for the NFL.

Who else wants him: Has offers from the likes of Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami (Fla.), Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, UCLA and Washington.

Odds they get him: 40 percent

2. LB Raekwon McMillan (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty County)
6-2, 249
ESPN 150 Rank: 15

Why they want him: New defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast’s 5-2 defensive front uses athletic linebackers, and McMillan undoubtedly fits that requirement.

Who else wants him: Ohio State is the early leader, but McMillan also has interest in Alabama, Clemson, Florida and Georgia, among others.

Odds they get him: 10 percent

3. ATH Michiah Quick (Fresno, Calif./Central)
6-0, 170
ESPN 150 Rank: 22

Why they want him: Quick could add depth at cornerback or become an instant contributor at receiver. USC usually has success in its pursuit of skill players, and Quick is one of its top in-state targets this year.

Who else wants him: Quick also has interest Alabama, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon and UCLA.

Odds they get him: 40 percent

4. TE Tyler Luatua (La Mirada, Calif./La Mirada)
6-3, 243
ESPN 150 Rank: 37

Why they want him: Luatua is the state’s top tight end, a physical blocker who isn’t afraid of contact. He’s exactly the type of player new offensive line coach Mike Summers would love to have.

Who else wants him: Alabama, where his brother, Isaac, plays offensive line, is the other early favorite, but seemingly every national power has offered.

Odds they get him: 50 percent

5. OT Casey Tucker (Chandler, Ariz./Hamilton)
6-6, 290
ESPN 150 Rank: 37

Why they want him: The coaching staff appears to have placed an emphasis on the offensive line in this cycle, grabbing commitments from Toa Lobendahn and Jordan Poland before the start of the junior seasons. Tucker, though, might be the best of the bunch.

Who else wants him: Hometown school Arizona State is making a strong push, as are UCLA, Stanford and Texas A&M. Alabama and LSU are also in steady contact.

Odds they get him: 50 percent
