Lincoln Riley needs to protect Southern California in recruiting. No one denies this. Lincoln Riley needs to recruit nationally. No one denies this. The better question is how he can balance those two needs to form an overall recruiting strategy which works for him at USC.
Which states does Riley need to target? How does the Big Ten affect his choices and his plan? What position groups are going to be hard to get for Riley? Which aspects of the current landscape of national college football recruiting must Riley — and USC fans — be aware of right now?
We discussed these and other related questions on the latest episode of The Riley Files, our 12-part summer podcast series on the new head coach of the USC Trojans. Oklahoma insider Kegan Reneau offered his thoughts on Riley’s needed recruiting plan at USC in Episode 8 of our series.
Ian Hest produced the show.
