It is universally agreed new assistant coach Donte Williams will improve recruiting. That is why he was hired.
But if he gets some offensive players to commit, what exactly have Graham Harrell, Mike Jinks, Tim Drevno and Keary Colbert been doing the past year?
Harrell couldn’t even land a two-star QB this year. Jinks did not sign any tailbacks. Drevno signed a collection of linemen ranked below USC standards. Colbert got two wide receivers but you could probably do that given USC’s reputation and pass-happy offense.
It’s just important to realize when these guys pat Williams on the back, they indict themselves. And that goes for the recruiting dept. too.
Why hasn’t USC named Williams recruiting coordinator yet? He seems the overwhelming best candidate for the job.
