If it's National Signing Day, it must mean Lane Kiffin is somewhere landing blue-chip recruits. And that hasn't changed in 2012.

The latest example: defensive end Leonard Williams, from Mainland High School in Daytona Beach (Fla.), who announced he would sign with Kiffin's USC over Auburn, Florida and Florida State. A 6'5", 260-pound strongside end who could grow into a defensive tackle, Williams is a high-upside prospect ranked by Maxpreps as the nation's No. 25 defensive end

Tom Lemming writes of Williams:

Leonard has been blessed with long arms, quick feet, and excellent mobility. He started out slow but developed into a blue chip prospect by the end of the season. Exceptional against the run, he's pretty good against the pass. Shows good straight line speed, is excellent in pursuit, and is able to stack, shed, and display some good change of direction ability. A big-framed player who could weigh 300 pounds in college and wind up playing DT.

Thanks to NCAA sanctions the Trojans have one of the smallest classes in the CBS Sports National Signing Day top 25, with only 13 commitments. But those 13 are still strong enough to put Kiffin's team at No. 12 in those rankings.

Say what you want about Lane Kiffin, but the man is a recruiting assault weapon.

SC would not have crushed Alabama or LSU had they gotten in to the Title Game. But they would have brought home the crystal football. SEC=overrated!!!!!

USC would have crushed BAMA this year?????  Thank you for that.  I really needed a good laugh.  I don't believe there is a team in the country that could have crushed Alabama this year.  You actually have to score on a team to crush them.  Keep dreaming, one day, your team will win antoher title, too.  Before you go to screamin', I believe you have the best QB in the nation - this past year included.  Still, NOBODY would have crushed Alabama this year.
