When wide receiver DeAndre Moore of Los Alamitos decommitted from Oklahoma in January, the fanboys immediately projected Moore would head to USC.
But Moore, ESPN’s No. 17 overall recruit for the Class of 2023, committed to Louisville on Tuesday.
So where were the fanboys who beat the drums Moore would go to USC? Crickets.
This is part of the recruiting game. No one remembers when people are wrong so it pays to just say every recruit wants to go to whatever school you root for. In the West, it happens a lot with USC and Oregon.
And if you get called out (unlikely), you just move on to the next recruit. There’s always a next recruit.
