Mykel Williams, a five-star defensive end from Columbus, Ga., announced today he committed to USC.
Williams is rated the No. 25 player in the nation by Rivals and No. 2 strongside defensive end.
It’s a big commitment — if he actually follows through and comes to USC.
It also takes some heat off defensive line coach Vic So’oto after he lost Jay Toia to UCLA.
Here’s another issue with recruiting: What happens if, in a perfect world, Clay Helton gets fired and a new coach like Luke Fickell fires the assistant coaches except Donte Williams.
Do recruits like Mykel Williams still come to USC? The answer is yes . . . if you hire the right head coach.
