There is a lot of uncertainty for the USC Trojans as they head into signing day, but one thing that is certain is the quality of new enrollees already in school for the spring semester.

The seven early enrollees at USC make up one of the best groups ever to arrive for the spring semester. Each of the early enrollees will have the ability to compete in spring ball for early playing time and will also have the extended opportunity to get adjusted to college life before the season begins. It wasn't too long ago that it was rare for a high school senior to bypass his final semester in order to begin college early, but it has become much more common and the Trojans used it to their benefit for this class.
