It’s time to grade the current commitments, including those who are “soft” commits but might end up elsewhere. Of course, the standard currency here is the Euro, on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best.

Senior Bowl Recap

We talked to an NFL scout who said Clay Matthews gained the most at last week’s Senior Bowl because he was the least known player to most teams. The buzz is Matthews could become a late first-round pick if he keeps impressing teams.

Question Of The Day

Can USC possibly land Bryce Brown, the No. 1 tailback in the nation, with four tailbacks returning next season? Brown informed USC this week he might visit after signing date, possibly with wide receiver Orson Charles.

Williams Watch

La Mirada forward Derrick Williams, who signed with USC last fall, is averaging 24.3 points per game, 8.7 rebounds, 2.5 blocked shots and 2.3 steals per game. His stock has probably risen more than any recruit in the state since last spring.

No Hasiak

Offensive lineman Stan Hasiak of Kapolei High School in Hawaii will not be visiting USC this weekend. Frankly, if someone needs to take another visit after committing to two schools, there are some issues.
