LOS ANGELES -- The USC Trojans didn't add to their 2013 recruiting class during Sunday's junior day, but Lane Kiffin and staff took strides toward adding top talent at several key positions by extending a handful of offers.

Tom Hauck for ESPN.comMax Browne's first trip to USC was a profitable one, as the ESPNU 100 quarterback was offered by the Trojans on Sunday.
Most notable was the offer to quarterback Max Browne (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline), a surefire five-star talent who will challenge for the top spot at his position throughout his senior season. Browne's parents did not make the trip to Los Angeles, but he was joined on the unofficial visit by his older brother, who has resided in Southern California for nearly 10 years. It was the first time Browne had been to USC, and Browne's brother, Mitch Browne, said the news they received from Kiffin at visit's end was completely unexpected.
