I’m sure if wide receiver Bru McCoy of Mater Dei picks USC it will be celebrated by everyone.
But he is a wide receiver and USC needs cornerbacks.
So let’s check on some local cornerbacks:
Five-star Elias Ricks (Class of 2020) of Mater Dei committed to LSU.
Four-star Darion Green-Warren (Class of 2020) committed to Oklahoma.
Four-star Jeremiah Criddell of Mater Dei (2019) signed with Oklahoma last week.
Five-star Chris Steele of St. John Bosco (2019) is not expected to commit to USC.
But USC is getting a cornerback who had offers from Portland State, Sacramento State and Washington State.
You can talk all day about Kliff Kingsbury‘s offense but Clancy Pendergast is going to have young cornerbacks playing man-to-man coverage next season and none of them have showed anything so far. And it doesn’t look like much help is on the way.
