In the USC newsletter today, I have the reason the College Football Hall of Fame had a glaring Trojan omission.
USC used to be a place where a tight end like Gay could switch to defensive end in the NFL and have a successful 10-year career with the same pro team. Now you don’t even know if a USC player who doesn’t switch positions will stick in the NFL.
I like this kid because he is very open about where he might transfer. Unlike some players who never seem to say a word about their plans.https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

June recruiting visits
One recruit said after his weekend USC visit that it is an “amazing football school, amazing education.” So he’s coming, right? And so is everyone else! Hurray!
How many recruits ever say they had a lousy visit?
This is a weekend where college baseball and softball are really getting national attention. And USC is nowhere to be found with a moribund baseball program and no softball program.

That’s why there is a lacrosse team, which can use the existing soccer field.
Stanford opens its season vs. Kansas State in Palo Alto at 9 a.m. PT! Oregon goes to Ohio State in Week 2 and the kick off is 9 a.m. PT!
At least USC gets to play at Washington State at 12:30 p.m. and in September. The downside is that’s good news for Clay Helton.
The former USC swimmer, who faces seven charges for participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol building, is discussing a plea bargain.
