Morning Buzz: How Many Scholarships Will USC Have Next Season?

With just eight seniors on its roster, USC might have only 16 scholarships available for its 2020 recruiting class.

That is an issue for Clay Helton but more importantly it might be an issue for Urban Meyer or another potential Helton replacement. It gets detailed here.

USC signed 26 players in its recent recruiting class, which is eight more than graduate this year. That wouldn’t be so bad if USC didn’t have its worst recruiting class in at least 20 years.

So what happens if only 16 scholarships are available. The biggest thing is a new coach would likely need to come in and start running players out of the program to free up some scholarships. That leaves a bit of a mess for a new coach but reflects poorly on Helton for some bad planning.

Is that surprising given Helton doesn’t even seem to know which players to recruit or offer scholarships?

The nightmare continues!

    And the Errand Boy will use 10-12 of those scholarships for WR’s.

    1. Welcome back to our little site, young fella. You have provided all the doubters with a real gem of an interview. To those who say we have nothing to work with in 2019, maybe it would be smart to listen to what one of the best offensive minds in college football has to say about USC’s talent level. Listen specifically to what he has to say about J. T. And pay attention to his genuine enthusiasm about USC’s prospects in the upcoming season.

      2. trojan67 —The thing that I found most interesting in that 26 minute interview was the 10 seconds in which Harrell said that he hopes to get the players “ENERGIZED” and “WANTING to get into the end zone MORE than the defense wants to keep them out.” Harrell sees what needs to happen. I don’t mean this to be a cheap shot —BUT—it would be smart to let Harrell address the offense before it goes out to start the game and before it returns to the field after the half. Maybe that’s impossible —but I’m tired of hearing Helton’s spiel and I’m sure the team must be too. It was fine before you got used to it —-but it seems tired now and that’s the way his offense looks and plays —tired. If this bunch of players can get excited about football again, they’ll be tough to beat.
