USC was the big winner of the early college signing period that started on Wednesday. The Trojans signed four players, including two players who could see heavy action immediately next fall.

Defensive end Morgan Breslin (Diablo Valley JC, Calif.) committed to UCLA over the summer, but took an official visit to USC last weekend and jumped at the Trojans' offer. Breslin racked up 28 sacks over the last two seasons and will be expected to step in and provide depth at weakside defensive end after junior Nick Perry declared for the NFL draft.

"USC was always my dream school," Breslin said. "I never thought I would have an opportunity to go there and when they offered a scholarship so late in the process, I was pretty floored. I was ready to commit on the spot and basically did. This is an incredible opportunity for me and I can't wait to get to USC and get going there."
