Big Recruiting Weekend For USC

USC has plenty of recruits visiting this weekend. Many are already committed to the Trojans. I’ll list them but it’s weird how the recruiting services can disagree on some prospects. Offensive tackle Caleb Lomu of Gilbert, Ariz., is visiting. He sounds like a must get because he is listed as the nation’s No. 9 offensive tackle by On3.

If It’s Friday, It’s Time For A USC Notes Column

What about you wondering about as USC faces heavy underdog Arizona State at the Coliseum? I’m wondering if Lincoln Riley will give Miller Moss some real playing time or if he wants to pad Caleb Williams’ stats?

Alex Grinch Sends Message To Korey Foreman

Is Korey Foreman ever going to live up to his five-star hype? As I noted after the Oregon State game, he didn’t play a single snap despite the fact Romello Height (shoulder) is out for the season. Why didn’t he play? “Practice,” USC defensive coordinator Alex Grinch said. “The conversation’s not about Korey.

USC Morning Buzz: Caleb Williams Keeps Low Profile

USC quarterback Caleb Williams did not speak to reporters after the Oregon State game. He then did not speak as scheduled Wednesday for his weekly appearance with the media. It’s a bad look. If you make $8 million a year and can do TV commercials, you can handle speaking to the media after a bad game. He’ll do it in the NFL. You think Justin … Continue reading USC Morning Buzz: Caleb Williams Keeps Low Profile
