As I have noted, two of the top six players in the nation from the Class of 2020 are from Southern California and are currently not going to go to USC. Neither is the five-star receiver from Calabasas.
But maybe USC can make Hawaii a recruiting fortress. Defensive end Maceal Afaese of Kapolei, Hawaii, visited USC over the weekend. It’s early so his only offers are from Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State and Colorado.
USC signed three players from Hawaii in its 2019 recruiting class. But it lost offensive tackle Enokk Vimahi, who signed with Ohio State.
- Here is a Lynn Swann quote from when he ran for governor of Pennsylvania.
“I think the people of Pennsylvania would rather have a governor who is committed to being there,” Swann said.
Why doesn’t he have that philosophy with being USC athletic director?
- The Pac-12 might be a joke but here is an impressive fact: Oregon and Oregon State women’s basketball played Friday night before a sellout crowd of 12,364 at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene. Then on Monday night, a crowd of 9,301 watched the two teams play at Gill Coliseum in Corvallis.
When is the last time USC men’s basketball drew two crowds like that back-to-back? During the Tim Floyd era?
- If the Pac-12 Tournament were today, USC would play Arizona in the first round.
