The wide receiver from Los Alamitos committed to Oklahoma, wisely. And since he is a Class of 2023 prospect, if USC ever gets it act together and hires a new coach, he can reconsider.
An early breakout star of training camp. And it shows USC really won’t miss Bru McCoy with its large contingent of receivers.
The big tight end is another early breakout star in training camp who fell into the lap of Clay Helton.
ANDRE DE GRASSE
The sprinter kicked off USC’s gold-medal winners with a victory in the 200 meters.
USC TIES TO 4×400 RELAY TEAM
Imagine what could have been for USC track and field in the above picture of the gold-medal winners. Allyson Felix (left) attended USC but never competed as a Trojan. Dalilah Muhammad (second from left) was a four-time All-American at USC. Sydney McLaughlin (far right) had USC as her No. 2 choice before she signed with Kentucky. When she turned pro, her coach was USC assistant coach Joanna Hayes.
With three wide receivers committing to other schools in the past week (including two to Notre Dame), does the placid USC wide receivers coach deserve some scrutiny?
ATHLETIC DEPT. ANNOUNCEMENTS
The problem here is the way USC always rolls out bad news for fans, like last week’s tailgate passes. In small doses, which leaves many confused and then turns them off completely. Oh, and then it cost $496 for the pass. Welcome back from COVID-19 restrictions!
BRAIN DEAD STATEMENTS
Clay Helton thought no one would notice how he always compliments the strength coach the same way, whether he hired or fired them. Almost no one did.
How is arguably the best player on the team in COVID-19 protocols before even a single practice?
Out of sight. Out of mind.
TRAINING CAMP HYPE
One site promoted a linebacker before the first practice who turned out to be injured and didn’t participate.
ALUMNI PARK CLOSURE
This was a place to tailgate on campus in past years but will now be a “game day experience” site where no outside food or drink will be allowed.
