Trojans playing waiting game

LOS ANGELES -- It has been couple of uneasy weeks in December for USC recruiting fans.

The Trojans lost two players from their class when USC coaches decided to part ways with wide receiver Jaydon Mickens (Los Angeles/Dorsey) and running back Kelvin York (Fullerton, Calif./Fullerton College).

New UCLA head coach Jim L. Mora made a splash in the recruiting world by hiring Adrian Klemm, Steve Broussard and Demetrice Martin as assistant coaches. All three have serious ties to the Los Angeles area and were the primary recruiters there for SMU, Arizona State and Washington, respectively.
