USC has seven commitments and six of the players are three-star prospects according to Rivals.com.
There’s nothing wrong with taking a three-star prospect but several times in the past few weeks, even recruiting analysts seem surprised when someone commits to the Trojans.
So last night, again, I spoke to someone who works within the USC football program.
“There’s no way everyone currently committed will sign next February,” the person said.
So what is the point? To have commitments now in case other players don’t commit later? USC doesn’t need to do that so I’m not so sure.
There has to be a good reason. Maybe Clay Helton wants to load up on good character, lesser-known prospects to avoid problems in 2-3 years.
The only problem is some of these guys won’t actually sign with USC. How many? I will let you set the over/under on that . . . for now.
