Running back arguably registers as the most important position for the USC Trojans in the 2013 recruiting class.

The departure of Curtis McNeal following the 2012 season will leave those two -- redshirt freshman Buck Allen and redshirt sophomore D.J. Morgan -- as the only tailbacks on the roster.

Abundantly aware of the issue, Kiffin and his staff have jumped out quickly in recruiting running backs and will be in position this week to take a huge step forward, as they will host one of the country's top talents in Ty Isaac (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Catholic).
