From the moment he returned to USC a year ago, Lane Kiffin talked about building a wall around Southern California to keep top local recruits at home.

Kiffin pretty much achieved his goal on Wednesday, the first day that high school and junior college players could sign letters of intent, though he lost out on Crenshaw's highly regarded De'Anthony Thomas, who chose Oregon after verbally committing to USC.

"I'm always going to not be excited if it's not everybody," Kiffin said before the announcement of Thomas' reversal. "But unfortunately you can't get everybody every time."
