No USC Press Conference Or Recruiting Dinner On Signing Day

Clay Helton is like a wrecking ball for the USC football program. He is not doing a Signing Day press conference. I can’t ever remember that happening before. There is no recruiting dinner tonight. Helton will be on “Trojans Live” tonight at 6 p.m. When you sign one player today, apparently no need for a press conference. There is probably more need to answer some … Continue reading No USC Press Conference Or Recruiting Dinner On Signing Day

Michael Drennen Picks Kentucky Over USC

Tailback/wide receiver Michael Drennen of Dublin, Ohio, just committed to Kentucky over USC. Surprised? Of course not. USC’s recruiting class is ranked No. 66 by Rivals and No. 54 by 247Sports. Apparently, two-star QB Cade Fennegan has not yet signed his letter of intent with Boise State and is still mulling his decision. USC is also taking two walk-ons from St. John Bosco: Danny Lockhart … Continue reading Michael Drennen Picks Kentucky Over USC

USC Loses 2-Star QB And Tailback Prospect

Two-star QB Cade Fennegan decided to sign with Boise State. Tailback Elijah Turner, who visited two weeks ago, committed to North Carolina-Charlotte. It’s a Signing Day to remember all right. At least Jack Yary will sign because he always wanted to go to USC and didn’t care about Helton, the Air Raid ignoring the tight end or anything else. Is Coach Bohn high-fiving Helton today? … Continue reading USC Loses 2-Star QB And Tailback Prospect

USC Morning Buzz: This Is What Recruiting Has Become

Someone at USC told a couple days ago the Trojans had a recruit with zero offers on campus. It seemed a little hard to believe. USC might have the worst recruiting class in the Pac-12 but it’s still signing mostly three-star players. Then I found out the truth: USC actually had TWO players on campus last weekend who had zero offers. Now for the explanation: … Continue reading USC Morning Buzz: This Is What Recruiting Has Become

USC Batted .500 On Silent Commits Because They Were Never Solid

All right, let’s find those four silent commits Mike Bohn identified (against NCAA rules): There was Tuli Tuipulotu, the younger brother of a player and a three star. There was Dwight McGlothern, who backed off as soon as other schools, notably LSU, wanted him. I question if his silent commitment was ever that solid. He scheduled two official visits after he was supposed to announce … Continue reading USC Batted .500 On Silent Commits Because They Were Never Solid

USC Adds A Three-Star Lineman

Courtland Ford, a three-star offensive lineman from Cedar Hill, Texas, committed to USC. I told you Clay Helton was dropping recruits and this is one of the reasons why. Ford is still a three-star, however, so if Mike Bohn wants to crow about this, he can remember he is not at Cincinnati or Colorado anymore. This is going to be the most-spinned recruiting class ever … Continue reading USC Adds A Three-Star Lineman
