Maybe the oddest comment from Clay Helton in the past five days was that he wants to be “super selective” with the Class of 2020 recruiting class.
When did Helton decide this?
USC’s recruiting class is a collection of mostly three stars and ranked in the 50’s nationally. Does that sound “super selective”?
When Helton tries to turn a negative into a positive it rarely comes off as genuine, despite his homespun nature.
Was part of the “super selective” strategy to not make the top 4 list of Upland linebacker Justin Flowe?
- USC will not practice in full pads until Wednesday. That is when real quarterback evaluation can take place. Although even then, the quarterback cannot be hit so it’s not completely like a live game.
- Former USC wide receiver/cornerback Keyshawn Young has transferred to Marshall.
- Former USC cornerback Ajene Harris signed with a free-agent contract with the Philadelphia Eagles today. He was not drafted last spring.
- When USC announced successful men’s tennis coach Peter Smith resigned on July 19, I wrote several sources told me he was actually forced out.
Someone who knows Smith told me Monday he has been the only coach for his two sons, who will compete together at USC for the first time next season. Does that sound like a time for someone like Smith to “resign”?
