Korey Foreman, the No. 1 player from California for 2021, committed to Clemson on Sunday night.
Bryce Young, the No. 1 player from California for 2020, signed with Alabama.
Kayvon Thibodeaux, the No. 1 player from California for 2019, signed with Oregon.
What’s worse is these guys were from Corona Centennial, Mater Dei and Oaks Christian, respectively. USC should be able to get whoever it wants from schools like this. And it used to until recently.
Recruiting is so bad right now USC can’t even lock down one high school. It lost its grip over Mater Dei in the past two years. It never locked down St. John Bosco. It lost Narbonne to Oregon. It never really even made a huge impact at Corona Centennial. Remember Drake Jackson was a three-star who was going to Arizona State until USC came in late.
Clay Helton, of course, will take no responsibility. It’s because USC doesn’t have enough recruiting staffers. It’s savior is now Todd Orlando.
Do you think Ed Orgeron worries about USC when he recruits Southern California? Does Dabo Swinney? Does anyone?
- There was a scare Monday night with a report that a student was transported to the hospital from the off-campus Lorenzo apartments with a case of the coronavirus. The Lorenzo, which has a lot of USC students, put out the report.
USC then denied the report and the Lorenzo sent out an email saying it was a false alarm.
