Add Plant City tight end Jordan Prestwood to the list of recruits new USC coach Lane Kiffin was targeting at Tennessee that he is now trying to bring to Southern Cal.

Plant City coach Jason Strunk said the Trojans -- Kiffin and recruiting coordinator Ed Orgeron both came from Tennessee -- are now recruiting Prestwood. Prestwood recently received a visit from Tennessee coaches before Kiffin took the USC job.

The 6-foot-6, 260-pound Prestwood, a prime offensive tackle recruit, has offers from West Virginia, South Carolina and Purdue as well as in state schools USF, UCF and FIU.

Tampa Catholic OT Chaz Green is another local recruit who was very interested in Tennessee and has now been targeted by Kiffin and Co. at USC.
