USC's 2007 class now all eligible
USC's highly anticipated newcomer class got another positive jolt late Friday afternoon when Angelo Johnson beat the deadline to be admitted to USC by 15 minutes.
Johnson made it through the NCAA Clearinghouse at 4:45 p.m. (PDT), just in time to beat the 5 p.m. deadline. Friday was the last day Johnson could be admitted to play in the fall semester. If Johnson's case wasn't processed by Friday then he wouldn't have been eligible to join the Trojans until mid-December at the earliest.
