If you are distressed that recent USC commitment Kyle Juergens is a two-star prospect, it doesn’t mean the recruiting services are always right?
Kenechi Udeze was not a highly regarded prospect until after he committed to USC.
And sometimes it works in the reverse way.
Why did recruiting services rank former point guard Derryck Thornton a five-star prospect? He was ranked the No. 14 player in the nation by Rivals but when he transferred to USC from Duke, the first thing I heard was that he was not as good as the hype.
He is now off to Boston College, his third college in five years.
The bigger picture is that when Pete Carroll offered a two-or-three star, you probably felt better about it than when it is coming from Clay Helton.
