USC was in town last week and though it was not a positive for them on the field against ASU, they still made their mark in recruiting around the valley offering three of the state’s top prospects. Plus they may not be done and are showing a lot of interest in a few more prospects that are still at the beginning of their recruitment. Jared Cohen and Scout.com’s Jason Jewell bring you all of those names on this edition of the Recruiting Roundup plus, bring you Arizona high school football’s “breakout players” a month into the 2013 season and the Recruiting Roundup Player of the Week for Week 5.
