Forget about this year’s quarterback derby because JT Daniels will start.
What about after Daniels? Does USC want Mater Dei quarterback Bryce Young to commit this month or does it worry that might hurt its chances with St. John Bosco quarterback DJ Uiagalelei?
I’m hearing it is very unlikely Uiagalelei commits to USC if Young does first.
Young is the No. 1-ranked dual-threat QB by Rivals.com for 2020. Uiagalelei is the No. 1-ranked pro-style QB for 2020 by Rivals. He is also the No. 1-ranked overall player by Rivals.
But if you want one, Uiagalelei is the guy.
So how does USC finesse this? Maybe it should barely speak to Young like it did Oaks Christian defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux. That might cause Young to commit somewhere else.
