Back in the spring, the USC fan sites started going gaga over St. John Bosco offensive guard Drake Metcalf, which meant they thought he really, really liked the Trojans.
Metcalf might like USC but Saturday night he committed to Stanford.
He is a four-star per Rivals so maybe that is why he spurned USC. The homers are thrilled with last week’s haul of two-and-three star offensive linemen so in their mind it does not matter. They do not base their glee on fact but trust in USC coaches.
So this week two four stars (Jeffrey Persi, Metcalf) committed elsewhere. Persi to Michigan and Metcalf to Stanford. I suppose offensive line coach Tim Drevno didn’t really want them, right?
