Take a look at USC's recruiting class of 2018.
USC climbed back to the top of the Pac-12 this season by going 11-2 and beating Stanford for a second time to win the conference championship game, earning a trip to the Cotton Bowl.
In his second season in charge, coach Clay Helton guided the Trojans to 10 wins, the first consecutive 10-win seasons for USC since they did it seven consecutive times from 2002-2008. Both of USC's losses came on the road to teams currently ranked in the top 20. A blowout loss to Notre Dame might have been too much for the Trojans to overcome to make the College Football Playoff, but the team was able to stay ranked in the top 25 all season for the first time since 2008.
