I’m told that four-star JSerra offensive tackle Jeffrey Persi, who committed to Michigan this week, actually had USC as his dream school. But Persi viewed USC as too risky with all the uncertainty regarding the football program.
Meanwhile, USC is cleaning up with two-and-three star offensive line recruits.
- I mentioned yesterday that USC is not retaining Rick Carr, its director of security and long-time “bodyguard” for USC football coaches from John Robinson to Clay Helton. A USC assistant coach wondered if the writing was on the wall when Carr celebrated his birthday and Pete Carroll sent a best-wishes video but there was nothing from Helton.
