Notre Dame to host big weekend

LOS ANGELES -- The USC Trojans closed their incredible 2011 recruiting class with a phenomenal weekend in mid-January, hosting more than a dozen prospects from across the country.

Their hosting abilities that weekend eventually netted them commitments from Lamar Dawson, Aundrey Walker, Cyrus Hobbi, Marqise Lee, Ryan Henderson, Junior Pomee, Buck Allen, Anthony Sarao and Amir Carlisle.

But when the Trojans make their way this weekend to South Bend, they'll be looking to throw a wrench in Notre Dame's plans for its own perfect recruiting weekend.
