Elite talent ready to flock to USC for Rising Stars Camp

A stellar collection of prospects are set to converge on the campus of USC this Wednesday and Thursday for the Trojans' Rising Stars Camp. Always a highly-anticipated event that draws some top-flight talent, this year's version certainly won't be any different, with a number of big-time prospects not only from right in USC's own backyard set to participate, but from all across the country.

Providing a chance for the Trojans coaching staff to get an up-close look at some recruits on their radar, it's not unusual for a number of offers to go out immediately following the event, both to established commodities, as well as to the occasional hidden gem who breaks through with a strong performance.

Here's a look at some of the recruits expected to be on hand at the two-day camp.
