New Trojans commitment Max Browne is asking other top recruits to join him at USC.
As if the commitment of Max Browne, arguably the top quarterback recruit in the country, wasn't enough for USC fans, Browne is also turning into a recruiter for the Trojans. Last night Browne said that he would start recruiting some of the top prospects in the country including Su'a Cravens, Michael Hutchings, Ty Isaac and Priest Willis.
Browne said he's been talking w Sua Cravens, Michael Hutchings, Ty Isaac and Priest Willis about joining him at USC...— Brandon Huffman (@BrandonHuffman) April 5, 2012
Cravens, of Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta, is arguably the top safety recruit in the country. Hutchings, of Concord (Calif.) De La Salle High School, is one of the top outside linebacker recruits in the country. Isaac, of Joliet (Ill.) Catholic Academy, is one of the top running backs and athletes nationally. And Willis, of Tempe (Ariz.) Marcos De Niza, is a stud defensive back recruit.
To the extent that USC needs to overcome negative recruiting related to its probation and reduced scholarships, Browne's public commitment and recruiting should help.
Be sure to look for scouting reports of Cravens, Hutchings, Isaac and Willis soon on SB Nation's recruiting hub.
