Editor's note: WeAreSC recruiting editor Erik McKinney will rank the Trojans' commitments from 10 to 1 according to the importance of each to the 2012 roster. Prospect No. 1 is OL/DL Arik Armstead.

The fact a debate regarding which side of the ball Arik Armstead is best suited to play is virtually inevitable means absolutely nothing to the USC coaches. The fact Armstead has verbally committed to USC means everything to the Trojans' 2012 recruiting class.
