USC's 2011 recruiting class is starting to materialize more and more on campus.
Nine players enrolled early and began taking classes in January. Another five arrived last month and enrolled in the first summer session that began May 18. The next eight members got to campus over the weekend, leaving just 10 more to assemble over the remaining 45 days until fall camp begins on Aug. 4.
The eight: linebackers Lamar Dawson (Junction City, Ky./Boyle County) and Anthony Sarao (Egg Harbor Township, N.J./Holy Spirit), offensive linemen Aundrey Walker (Cleveland, Oh./Glenville) and Marcus Martin (Los Angeles, Calif./Crenshaw), receivers George Farmer (Los Angeles, Calif./Gardena Serra) and Marqise Lee (Inglewood, Calif./Gardena Serra) and defensive linemen DeVante Wilson (Corona, Calif./Corona) and Christian Heyward (San Diego, Calif./Point Loma).
The remaining 10 include cornerback Isiah Wiley (West Monroe, La./Arizona Western JC), linebacker Tre Madden (Aliso Viejo/Mission Viejo) and running back Javorious 'Buck' Allen (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln), among others.
Classes for the eight arrivals -- the second summer session offered by USC -- will begin next Wednesday, June 29, and continue until mid-August, just before the regular fall semester begins. USC is permitted to provide financial aid for these sessions under the NCAA's Summer Bridge Program.
Players that arrive over the summer aren't necessarily automatically eligible for competition in the fall. The telltale sign for eligibility is typically whether or not the newcomers actually suit up for fall camp past the 14-day allotment of practice time. Quarterback Jesse Scroggins and defensive back Demetrius Wright arrived on campus last summer and participated in the first two weeks of fall camp but then had to sit out for a few days while their cases were being reviewed.
