If there is one thing USC is good at, it’s bragging before it accomplishes anything.
Let me start off saying I spoke to a respected coach who knows new cornerbacks coach Donte Williams and said, “I think it’s a good hire, for sure.” I’ll have more on that later.
But look at the reaction of Graham Harrell:
Harrell has been at USC for 13 months. Why are the Trojans coming now? Because Harrell couldn’t recruit or change the narrative himself?
And then there is this from Mike Bohn’s No. 2, Brandon Sosna.

These guys observe radio silence for a month or more and totally ignore Signing Day. But they hire a highly regarded recruiter/assistant coach from Oregon and it’s break-out-the-noisemakers time!
What about Clay Helton? Back to radio silence.
UPDATED: Donte Williams tweeted he took the job in part because of his “father’s aging/failing health.” All the more reason to tone down the gloating.
