I know there are only a handful of defensive recruits still out there from the Class of 2020 but how much does it hurt USC that it does not have a defensive coordinator?
More importantly, do the recruits know some of the position coaches might be fired by a new coordinator?
There is a lot of uncertainty regarding USC coaching on the defensive side. And it’s hard to see at the moment how it helps recruiting.
For example, four-star linebacker Brennon Scott of Dallas has taken an official visit but would he pick USC over Kansas or Arkansas in the current climate?
