USC adds 2013 and 2014 commits

By Pedro Moura

The USC Trojans are now technically halfway done with assembling their 2013 recruiting class, having received their ninth verbal commitment on Sunday.

Receiver/defensive back Steven Mitchell (Mission Hills, Calif./Bishop Alemany) committed to USC at a camp on the school's campus over the weekend. He becomes the second receiver in the Trojans' 2013 class after Eldridge Massington (Mesquite, Tex./West Mesquite)

Because of scholarship limits under the terms of NCAA sanctions, the Trojans have a total of 18 slots to work with in the class of 2013 -- 15 regular signees and three early enrollees. They may already have the three early enrollees in the fold, too, in quarterback Max Browne (Sammamish, Wa./Skyline) and others who could potentially graduate high school in December.

Also committing to USC over the weekend was 6-8, 335-pound offensive tackle Jordan Poland (La Jolla, Calif./La Jolla Country Day), a rising high school junior. Poland is the first Class of 2014 prospect to commit to the Trojans.

Of course, quarterback David Sills (Elkton, Md./Eastern Christian) is already committed in the Class of 2015.
