MISSION VIEJO, Calif. -- The USC Trojans haven't been shy about Mission Viejo (Calif.) being a go-to high school for top talent. In recent years, they've signed quarterback Mark Sanchez, offensive lineman Drew Radovich and linebacker Tre Madden. USC's 2012 class features Jahleel Pinner, a tailback for the Diablos who will move to fullback for the Trojans. And as head coach Bob Johnson continues to put out talented players, the Trojans will continue to look to the Mission Viejo campus.

USC coaches already have their sights set on the next possible Diablo-turned-Trojan in Max Redfield, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound junior who plays safety and wide receiver. Redfield has 22 receptions for 401 yards and four touchdowns offensively this season, and 16 tackles with two interceptions playing the deep safety position defensively.
