Last year, USC conveniently did not schedule a Signing Day press conference for Clay Helton. It was probably the first time in history the school blew off Signing Day like that.
But Helton will speak at noon today to the media as USC feels confident about its Top 10 recruiting class. It’s ridiculous USC acts like that when no other school that fancies itself as a marquee program would cocoon the coach like that.
Helton makes no decisions any more so it’s like a brain-washed hostage being let out to answer a few questions.
USC thinks it will get a commitment from linebacker Raesjon Davis at 8:30 a.m. Offensive lineman Austin Uke, three-star tackle from Dallas, will announce at 10 a.m.
- Former USC offensive line coach Tim Drevno is a candidate to become head coach at Montana State.
- The New Orleans Saints hired Kris Richard as their secondary coach. His USC teammate, Ryan Nielsen, is the Saints’ defensive line coach.
