Talk about the rich getting richer.
USC already has one of the top 2013 recruiting classes in the country and now they have an even greater recruiting tool to lure potential prospects to their program.
Yesterday, the Trojans unveiled the brand-new John McKay Center, a $70 million, 110,000-square-foot athletic facility on USC’s campus.
If the pictures above don’t do it justice, just take a look at the video tour of the impressive building:
Here’s what USC had to say about their new gem:
The building houses meeting rooms, coaches’ offices and a locker room for the football program, as well as the Stevens Academic Center (including space for tutoring, counseling, study and computer rooms for student-athletes), a weight room, an athletic training room and a state-of-the-art digital media production facility for all of USC’s 21 sports.
The centerpiece of the McKay Center is the two-story video board in the Parker Hughes atrium, which can display six big screen televisions at once as well as promotional videos and graphics.
Like the statement said, the building is not just for football, but head coach Lane Kiffin will still have it at his disposal to convince prospects that there is not a better place to play in the country. It wasn’t really that hard to convince players to come to USC before and it will be even harder to say no now. Looking at their individual lockers, each player even has their own TV at their disposal, the weight room looks even better than some NFL weight rooms and the player lounge looks top notch.
It’s almost overwhelming how nice their facilities are and as far as the facilities race goes, USC is a run away winner.
