All right, let’s find those four silent commits Mike Bohn identified (against NCAA rules):
There was Tuli Tuipulotu, the younger brother of a player and a three star.
There was Dwight McGlothern, who backed off as soon as other schools, notably LSU, wanted him. I question if his silent commitment was ever that solid. He scheduled two official visits after he was supposed to announce he would go to USC and immediately committed to LSU when it informed him Friday night it had room for him.
There was Dorian Green-Warren, who claimed he was a silent commit until early Signing Day. Now, he might have been a silent commit at one time but I don’t know anyone at USC who thought in late November/December that Green might select the Trojans. He was lost before that.
There was Gary Bryant, who was a lock for a long time.
My point is Helton sold Bohn a bill of goods claiming he had four silent commits because one didn’t exist anymore and one was shaky at best. And for Bohn to go public on it was even worse.
