Lawndale tailback Jordan Wilmore, who committed to USC in August, will back off his commitment according to Chris Swanson of USC247.com.
Wilmore is looking at Utah and UCLA, which offered him last week.
I can think of several reasons for Wilmore to back off USC:
- He doesn’t know who the offensive coordinator will be
- He doesn’t know for sure if Mike Jinks will remain as running backs coach
- He knows an Air Raid offense can be less-than-ideal for tailbacks
- He sees how Clay Helton likes to play tailback-by-committee
- He doesn’t know how long Helton will be the coach
UPDATED: Wilmore decommitted on twitter to make it official.
