A coach from a Big 12 school laughed when I asked him why Clay Helton takes so long to offer scholarships to some top Southern California prospects.
USC offered cornerback Clark Phillips of La Habra last week. He is a 4-star prospect in USC’s backyard and already has 36 offers including Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, Ohio State, LSU and Notre Dame.
“I don’t know why he is so bad but I hope he keeps it up,” the coach said. “No leadership.”
The truth is opposing coaches are just keeping their fingers crossed USC keeps Helton.
The funnier part is a small segment of USC fans think changing three assistant coaches will make everything better.
