USC school president Carol Folt put a full-court press on five-star linebacker Justin Flowe today during his official visit.
That just makes you wonder more where Mike Bohn was to put on a similar recruiting effort. Maybe Folt can be credited for landing Flowe. Oregon is considered the leader for the linebacker.
Would Flowe commit to USC when Clancy Pendergast (defensive coordinator) and Johnny Nansen (linebackers) have been the subject of speculation they might not return?
Maybe USC told Flowe those coaches are returning. All I know is a current high school football coach said he visited a USC linebacker over the summer that he coached and went over some schemes with him of different college offenses.
“I’ve never seen any of that stuff before,” the linebacker said.
That’s not reassuring to hear.
- Some people have told me they thought former USC QB Jack Sears would go to a bigger school than San Diego State. Here’s what I always say about QB transfers. It doesn’t matter where you go, it matters if you play.
Sears would be fortunate to follow the footsteps of Dennis Shaw.
Shaw never earned a letter at USC and transferred to San Diego State, where he passed for 3,100 yards, 39 touchdowns and 26 interceptions in 1969. Shaw was a second-round draft choice and spent eight years in the NFL.
