USC holds its Junior Day on campus today. I’m sure the 2021 recruits will get a new shtick, especially from all the Texas-centric coaches.
But there is a Signing Day next week. Clay Helton and running backs coach Mike Jinks went to Dublin, Ohio, on Wednesday to visit four-star tailback Michael Drennen II.
Kentucky and USC are his top two choices but the Wildcats are believed to be the frontrunner. Does Drennen realize USC returns its top four tailbacks from last season?
It’s kind of typical of USC that with two-or-three scholarships left, it wants to sign a quarterback (Blake Shapen), tight end (Jack Yary) and tailback (Drennen).
Todd Orlando will need to start fighting in those recruiting meets for more defensive players. He doesn’t realize Helton is happy to just sign skill players, especially receivers.
Maybe Coach Bohn can preach balance at the next meeting he has with Helton.
