Recruiting notes: USC offers James

Nearly two months ago, ESPN 300 offensive tackle Andre James made a very productive visit to the USC campus, holding conversations with the new coaching staff and gathering information on tours.

Yet, James returned home to Utah without a scholarship offer from the Trojans.

The moment he had been waiting for arrived on Wednesday night when the 6-foot-5, 275-pound lineman received a call from head coach Steve Sarkisian.
