USC loves to say it is taking back the West or it owns L.A. on social media.
But let’s look at the past two weeks:
- WR Makai Lemon of Los Alamitos committed to Oklahoma.
- WR C.J. Williams of Mater Dei committed to Notre Dame.
- WR Tetairoa McMillan of Servite committed to Oregon.
That doesn’t even count Los Alamitos QB Malachi Nelson committing to Oklahoma over USC last month.
Notre Dame’s actually been a thorn in USC’s side this recruiting class as Alemany LB Niuafe Tuihalamaka switched his commitment from the Trojans to the Irish. And WR Tobias Merriweather of Camus, Wash., committed to Notre Dame. He was a USC target too.
