Oaks Christian defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux, ranked one of the top five players in the nation by Rivals.com, named his top 5 schools tonight: USC, Florida, Florida State, Alabama and Oregon.
Now for the jaw-dropping quote from Thibodeaux regarding USC, courtesy of 247Sports:
“They really haven’t been recruiting me that hard but I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. I’m not sure if they think I’m set on leaving home or what but I haven’t heard a lot from them in the last few months . . . it’s home for me and hopefully we can build that relationship through the course of the year.”
Even if Thibodeaux is wrong, that’s a troubling quote for a top-five player in USC’s backyard.
