Someone at USC told a couple days ago the Trojans had a recruit with zero offers on campus. It seemed a little hard to believe.
USC might have the worst recruiting class in the Pac-12 but it’s still signing mostly three-star players.
Then I found out the truth: USC actually had TWO players on campus last weekend who had zero offers.
Now for the explanation: The players were essentially being recruited as walk-ons. That’s fine. You need to have walk-ons for depth.
But when you’re bringing in multiple guys with zero offers right before Signing Day, it tells you just how problematic your recruiting class really is. Clay Helton talked in December about how he didn’t care about star rankings, he only cared about signing players who would help USC win games.
But if he did that, he wouldn’t be bringing in so many walk-ons to plug holes he thinks exist in the roster.
