FOX Sports/’s Tara Turnure and Scott Kennedy sit down to discuss USC’s incoming linebackers…

USC’s football program has always been highly regarded for their pro-style offense, but their defense on the other hand, has been taking some heat these last two seasons.

USC fans are still waiting to rebound the strong linebacker tradition from 2009, when they had three linebackers who were all forecasted to be first round draft picks in the NFL.

The good news is, we know two 2012 recruits, who may have just what it takes to help rebound that tradition, four-star middle linebacker Scott Starr from Norco (Calif.) and four-star outside linebacker Jabari Ruffin from Downey (Calf.)

Tune in below for our full discussion, which also includes player highlights.
