Although the college football season came to an end in January, excitement for the following season typically ramps up in February thanks to hundreds of high school players nationwide declaring their college intentions. And after winning the Rose Bowl in 2016, the future continues to look bright for the USC Trojans, which, according to several media outlets, had one of the best high school recruiting classes in the country. Incoming freshman are ranked on a five-star scale, and USC’s 23 commits included a pair of five-star players and 12 four-star athletes.

The team’s top recruit was running back Stephen Carr, a California native who was ranked as the third-best high school back in the country. The Trojans also added high-profile recruits such as offensive lineman Austin Jackson and Los Angeles-born wide receivers Joseph Lewis and Greg Johnson. The Trojans added 14 of ESPN’s top 300 high school recruits and six of the top 100.
