St John Bosco’s DJ Uiagalelei, the No. 1-ranked QB nationally in 2020, listed seven schools that he would focus on during his recruitment:
Where is USC? I know the way USC recruiting services swarmed around Uiagalelei, the Trojans were considered one of his favorites.
But maybe the fact Mater Dei QB Bryce Young committed to USC last summer played a part.
Personally, I’d take the 6-4 quarterback over the 5-9 quarterback but I’m not Clay Helton.
Besides, top recruits love to go elsewhere these days. Maybe King Kliff can convince Uiagalelei to reconsider USC. He also plays baseball, which is another reason it matters how Lynn Swann does (or does not do) his job.
At least now Mt. SAC can say it made a cut over USC.
