Clay Helton did an interview with SCNG today (what else does he have to do?) and said USC might try to add a QB if JT Daniels does indeed transfer:
“I think the May 20 vote [on immediate eligibility for transfers], we’re going to see how that affects college football. That is going to really see for kids, is that something that opens up the door to be able to look at other avenues and other opportunities. Obviously if JT decides to leave, having two scholarship quarterbacks on campus, we may try to acquire a third.
“JT, he and I both said, USC is one of his opportunities. That door has been left open. JT is still in our team meetings, position meetings, he’s still progressing as a quarterback. He’s still preparing. So this is all being done extremely respectfully and as a family. I think that May 20 vote has a lot to do with what the next step would be not only for JT but for us also.”
Helton also sucked up (again) to his bosses for the new coaching hires and football support staff additions.
“I’m really appreciative of Mike Bohn and Dr. [Carol L.] Folt for the resources and tools that they gave us.”
And they are thankful for the game balls from the UCLA game that he gave out (but not to Kedon Slovis).
