Recruits watching Stanford at USC
November, 15, 2013

While it's true again that one game won't tell the recruiting fortunes of either Stanford or USC, it's also fair to say that this is a very important game for the Trojans. Stanford is sitting at 16 solid verbal commitments and with the No. 2 class in the Pac-12. The Cardinal’s goal between now and signing day is to close the deal with several impact uncommitted recruits still on the board.
But USC, with only nine commitments, has an opportunity to make a huge statement to recruits in both the 2014 and 2015 classes on Saturday night. A win would give interim head coach Ed Orgeron even more momentum toward taking the position on a permanent basis, which would infuse even more energy and success into the recruiting efforts for the Trojans. Even with a positive showing, it wouldn't be a surprise to hear high profile recruits pick up the chatter about their interest in USC.
Here are 10 impact recruits who will have their sights set on the Coliseum, as USC hosts Stanford.
2015 WR Cordell Broadus (Diamond Bar, Calif./Diamond Bar): Broadus made waves when he now famously said following the dismissal of former USC head coach Lane Kiffin, "He should have been fired a while ago." Broadus said he was very much looking forward to what USC will do at the head coaching position and is excited about the future of the Trojans. He'll be in attendance Saturday night and will be looking to experience, first-hand, the direction of the program under Orgeron.
