USC Football: 2013 Recruiting Class Shaping Up Well with 7 Early Enrollees

Amy Lamare@GridironGoddessSenior Analyst IDecember 21, 2012

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, we’ve got bowl games and coaching changes and recruiting classes to fill the void of no regular season games until next September.  Wait…September is so far away! ACK!

Anyway, USC, despite its scholarship reductions, is putting together an epic recruiting class for 2013. QB recruit Max Browne, for instance, won the National High School Player of the Year award this week and he’s one of the crop of early enrollees we will take a look at tonight.

Others, like five-star safety from Murrieta, CA, Su’a Cravens signed his early enrollment paperwork with USC this week and is officially a Trojan.

Defensive end commit Kylie Fitts  signed his financial aid paperwork for USC Wednesday and hopes to practice with the Trojans this week.

All of this recruiting news and these solid commitments from soon-to-be freshman is like an early Christmas present for Trojan fans weary of coaching drama, losses and all the other less than savory situations that have circled this program of late.

Defensive lineman Kenny Bigelow, also a five-star recruit, signed his scholarship paperwork and will start classes at USC in January.  He joins Justin Davis and Chris Hawkins as additional early enrollment players.

Let’s take a look at the scouting specifics surrounding a few of these guaranteed Trojans from the 2013 recruiting class in what will become an ongoing series throughout the long, cold, desolate, Trojan football-less offseason.

I will present the stats and some video and let’s have a lively discussion in the comments about these awesome players and how they can make an immediate impact for the Trojans.
