LOS ANGELES -- Lane Kiffin and the USC coaching staff have already begun wading into another recruiting class that will be limited to 15 scholarships due to NCAA sanctions. That number could balloon to 18 total recruits, provided the Trojans bring in three early enrollees that will count against the 2012 class. The Trojans' staff has been at work on the class of 2013 for months, but with the spring evaluation period set to begin Sunday, WeAreSC takes a look at some of the top targets throughout the country, positions of need, and where the class stands at this time.

Needing a top-tier quarterback in this class, the Trojans swung for the fences and connected, grabbing an early commitment from Max Browne (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline), who stands as one of the top signal callers in the class. The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Browne is the kind of quarterback that will fit well in the Trojans' pro-style offense. As an added bonus, Browne plans to enroll early and will lead the recruiting charge for the Trojans up until signing day.
