LOS ANGELES -- One of the important assignments for the USC coaching staff in the coming weeks is going to be playing defense, as they will need to guard against the most cunning moves of opposing coaches who will do anything to win.

Drew Russell/IntersportMax Redfield now is a soft commit to USC after a trip to Notre Dame, underlying the need for Trojans fans to keep recruiting him and others.
The Trojans have taken a very different approach with the class of 2013 as all 18 available spots were filled with verbal commitments before the start of fall camp. Lane Kiffin talked about one of the big advantages of that strategy being that they would be able to devote more time to the current team during the season rather than putting the usual effort into recruiting.
