USC and UCLA recruiting rankings through the decade
The Trojans remained in the hunt for a couple uncommitted stars late Wednesday, but even if they miss out on those players, USC is likely to finish in the top five for the sixth time in seven years according to Rivals.com.
The Bruins surprised a lot of people by landing a top-five class for the first time this decade, according to Scout.com. This is officially Rick Neuheisel's second recruiting class, but last year's class was more a product of outgoing coach Karl Dorrell and then-defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker. Actually, give most of the credit to Walker.
Here's how the two programs have fared in the rankings over the last few years:
