USC athletic director Mike Bohn did an interview with the campus TV station today and made a pretty amazing statement:
“We also picked up four commitments that haven’t been announced yet . . . in the last four or five days and so I’m inspired by that.”
Since when does an A.D. mention commitments? I’m not even sure NCAA rules allow him to mention silent commitments.
But he’ll risk it to spin for keeping Clay Helton.
What else did Bohn say?
“The USC family, in the short time I’ve been there, that is a real thing. I will be out engaging members of those (booster) groups (that are unhappy). Not everybody is negative.”
“I’m challenging the Trojan Family to unite.”
On the football team: “I’d like to see us in our line play be more dominant. We want to be more physical on defense. We want to be able to run the ball.”
Asked if the College Admissions scandal impacted any of his decisions, Bohn said, “No.”
