Clay Helton said USC’s recruiting class was not “sexy” because it had so many linemen.
But isn’t the real issue that it did not have a quarterback, tailback, linebacker or defensive back?
But USC would have sacrificed five recruits for linebacker Justin Flowe. It would have found room for defensive back Darion Green-Warren, quarterback Bryce Young, wide receiver Kris Hutson or defensive back Dwight McGlothern.
The issue wasn’t whether the class was sexy. It was that the skill positions and corners ignored USC.
