WeAreSC takes a look at the top 25 junior prospects in the state, including several who will have the attention of the USC coaching staff. Players are listed alphabetically:

TE/LB Marcus Baugh (J.W. North) -- The 6-foot-4, 200-pound two-way threat is also a two-sport standout and could develop into a big-time basketball recruit as well.
