Oregon coach Mario Cristobal made this comment today at the Rose Bowl press conference:
“We’ve always made Southern California a priority for us. For us, this is our home state. That’s what it is. We’ve made it a priority.”
Oregon got Kayvon Thibodeaux last year, the state’s No. 1 player. USC put out a whisper campaign that it did not want him.
Two weeks ago, Oregon got Justin Flowe, the state’s No. 1 player.
That is unacceptable. But USC fans are told recruiting is “going dramatically better” than they care to admit.
Wait until Saturday when wide receiver Gary Bryant is expected to commit to USC. The USC-media industrial complex will go into hyperdrive to pretend the recruiting class has been saved.
