Does USC even have enough coaches to host recruits on official visits this weekend?
Mater Dei wide receiver Bru McCoy, ranked one of the nation’s top 10 players by Rivals, postponed his visit until Dec. 14-16.
Right now McCoy doesn’t even know who his position coach would be next season.
It’s all kind of disjointed right now within the football program: Is Clay Helton finished firing people? How does he think firing three position coaches is enough? Who will Helton hire? Can he hire real coaches this time around?
There is some definite damage control Helton needs to do with recruiting. A prominent high school coach told me Tuesday night he was unhappy with the way Tee Martin was treated and he was advising recruits to look at other schools.
USC’s recruiting class is not great, ranked No. 32 by Rivals, and will need to close strong in the final couple months. No one has ever told me recruiting is the strength of Clancy Pendergast or John Baxter and they must do something until new hires arrive. Johnny Nansen can’t do everything.
