When St. John Bosco’s Drake Metcalf became the latest four-star offensive lineman to commit elsewhere, here’s a little factoid about four lineman who have committed to USC: Kyle Juergens, Joey Wright, Andrew Milek and Andres Dewerk were all offered by San Diego State. So USC is putting a dent in San Diego State’s recruiting. But if you want to say these prospects were widely recruited, … Continue reading Let’s Look At The Best Offers Of Some Recruits
College football analyst Phil Steele says USC will be the sixth-most improved team in the nation. Steele lists Nebraska, Florida Atlantic, Florida State, Virginia Tech and Air Force in his top five.

I already said a reader told … Continue reading USC Afternoon Notes: As The University Turns

An official now says the teams will be honored . . . another amazing coincidence following the stories here. But how and where is undetermined. Also, USC is discouraging anyone from contacting new … Continue reading USC Moves Slowly To Honor Past Teams
