I know there are still a few apologists out there defending USC’s recruiting class but here’s another tale.
KJ Trujillo, a three-star cornerback from Orange Lutheran, said he was offered a scholarship by USC on Dec. 17.
That was two days before Signing Day!
He signed with Colorado, and also visited San Diego State and Utah State. Cornerback Mark Perry, who also signed with Colorado, was offered by USC on Dec. 12, exactly a week before Signing Day.
Maybe Colorado really is Cornerback U.
I’m really surprised the recruiting pundits are not jumping on Clay Helton and Co. over the way they botched the recruitment at cornerback. Whether it was Chris Steele’s decommitment or some questionable decisions with other recruits, it’s been developing over several months. Just read this if you doubt that.
