- When linebacker Stanley Taufoou of Grace Brethren committed yesterday, it led to some fan criticism because he is a three-star prospect.
Recruiting rankings can often be proven wrong. See Ricky Town (overrated) or Russell Wilson (underrated) for that.
But here is the problem that has nothing to do with whether people should be worried about USC taking three-star recruits: It’s not a bad thing unless it leads to USC dropping the recruit after they commit.
USC has a history in recent years of taking multiple commitments from recruits and then quietly dropping in the next six months.
It’s not good for the recruit and it shows poor judgement by the coaches.
USC always has highly ranked recruiting classes so there is no need to mess with the heads of a high school kid.
