USC Morning Buzz: Top Cornerback Nears Decision

Four-star cornerback Rodrick Pleasant of Serra High School in Gardena will make his college choice at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

There was a time when a Serra player just about automatically went to USC.

One has to wonder if Pleasant would have any reservations about Donte Williams and the development of cornerbacks at USC? Five-star Domani Jackson didn’t exactly make an impact his freshman season.

The flip side is whether any recruit (including Pleasant) falls for the Williams hype?

If Pleasant does choose USC, I suspect it will be more because he believes in his own ability than any coaching he will receive.

      1. Talk about Wolf farts, this thread is a big one. What an utter load of simple bullshit. Domani was hurt, but played when he wasn’t. The DB’s didn’t look that bad in coverage, it was tackling that sucked. If anyone has reservations, it is me with Wolf.

      2. Wolf is the “poor man’s” journalist. He takes the stories of others, adds his negative spin, and passes it on looking to generate clickbait. The results always lean toward a biased opinion

        Coward laughs at the guy


  1. Scottie Boy is going to die a lonely bitter old man. If I ever get as negative and snarky about EVERYTHING like Scott, please shoot me in the head.

    1. Actually this particular blog piece is very insightful: players who join our offense come cuz they wanna be coached by the proven best mind in the collegiate business. No player joining our defense is coming to be coached by the staff that ranked 113th in the country last year.

      1. Very true MG, there is zero defensive legacy so far with this team- while this topic has been beat to death, its a clear reminder to LR that he better get this fixed this year or else the the Alumni will be carrying torches to his home demanding action

      2. So why are they coming to USC? We got alot of really good players (mostly transfers) that are joining the team, so why are they coming? Did Mason Cobb have no other options?

        Just curious why any good players would join this defense if they think the coordinator is the 113th best coach for defense.

    1. Great article, So Cal. Thanks for posting.
      Hope everybody reads the last paragraph —some very wise words from the man who wrote “Money.”

      1. Inner Gabby: speaking about dying a lonely bitter old man, I hope no one has that idea about me. For one, I am already brain dead, like my hero Biden-we are buddies! Two, using “man” for me is a bit of stretch–I mean just look at how I write–more akin to a teenage girl; three, I will never be bitter since I can always fall back on my Richard Simmons exercise videos for inspiration (speaking of Richard Simmons, he is a vastly underrated intellectual–I draw much of inspiration from him), and, four, I can never be lonely since I can always talk with my outer self.

        Honk if you don’t have classified documents in your garage.


      2. More more more…..every time you post like that my little buddy slo troll sports a woody….After slapping him around for like ever, he deserves a little joy.

        I have great compassion for others. Just like trump, you’re the gift that keeps on giving….so Blessed!

  2. Wolf had a have a wet-dream and he still found faults in it. I am still trying to figure out a good excuse from Slo troll, any ideas?


  3. My profile for Scotty is a constipated old man with anger issues. He was probably bullied as child growing up and got run out of the gym, naked, in front of females,
    by jocks. He is now out to pay them back.


      1. Slo troll: You know what an older woman does to me?

        Mollie: changes your diapers

        (dude, you couldn’t have scripted it any better)


      2. Yes, with your obsession with soiled diapers I knew you’d like that part. But wasn’t going to allow it to keep me from posting.

        You’re probably into golden showers, too.


      3. Wasn’t it your king trump who engaged in one? According to a source, Putin has it all on video.

        I’ll have Putin send you a copy, enjoy!


      1. Slo troll, look in the mirror and explain it to yourself….you’re the one needing convincing.

        If you admire wolf’s dick-ism that’s a “you” problem. I don’t need to hear your lame excuse, save it for one of your imaginary supporters


      2. What a fucking dunce!!!! Did you read through the thread and comprehend the context, guess not. My comment was directed at Ken regarding his description of Wolf. Had nothing to do with wolf’s blog topic/comment. Be embarrassed!

        A die-hard wolf supporter like yourself, which Steve is not, might not appreciate Ken’s description. That’s why I threw in the admirer part. Real simple stuff here. Dude, your cognitive ability is in decline. It seems to happen on a daily bases……seek help!


      3. You’re such a dumbass. I wasn’t talking about me.

        Steve asked if there was such a thing and you asked what he was referring to, you moron.

        Go have another drink.


      4. How you’re backtracking out of your gaffe….tooo funny. Since when did you become Steve’s mouthpiece.

        You are a wolf admirer and lack the common sense to see the dick-ish he feeds you….feel privileged


      5. LMAO! I’m not backtracking anything, Dumbass, YOU are. Trying to claim you comment was directed at Ken when you wrote, “Steve, what are you referring to?”

        They don’t come any stupider than the Village Idiot. He proves it over & over again.


      6. You stupid limp-dick troll. Steve’s response was actually a rhetorical response to the “Wolf admirers” like yourself. But you lack the basic cognitive ability to comprehend the irony behind his response….When I asked in reference to( another rhetorical response) I hoped he would call out the fools like you…..Shit flies over your head way too often….LOL!

        It’s really pathetic that I have to break it down in the most simplest form for you to understand….I am sure you still don’t understand a thing a said…that’s a you problem

        What a waste of college education, feel embarrassed


  4. Domani was injured during the early part of the season and that is the primary reason he was not a starter.

    Pleasant will come to USC to play with his buddies like the Branch brothers.

    I dont know if Donte is a decent coach, maybe he is mediocre, but Scott likes to paint a picture of a coach who will ruin good players, which just isnt true. Mekhi Blackmon did just fine last year.

  5. Ceyair Wright played well at times. Wolf hates Donte Williams and wants him to suffer. The man isn’t God and is of second level importance at best. Wolf never acknowledged the youth of the secondary in his criticisms or Blackmon’s play. It’s more important that bad players were removed from the defense (i.e. Julien Simon, Kobe Pepe, Chris Steele) and players are forced to earn playing time. Covington had to earn time! Now the fundamentals of small linemen can be argued but with more experience plus talent next year we will find out if this staff can win. Bottom line.

    Pleasant will join USC because he’ll play immediately. Only UCLA comes close to giving him everything he wants other than USC. Oregon just ran 25 players out of their program. Who the hell wants to play in that kind of drama?
