Scott, I am really confused about our scholarship situation. I know we want to bring in as many as we have room for in January so that they will count against the 2010 class, but how many are we planning to bring in in February? Is it 15 or 20 or 25? Thank you very very much, Scott.
A: This confused me too so I have checked it to make sure. As of today, USC can sign as many as nine players in January at the mid-year period. These do not count under NCAA sanctions. USC can then sign 15 players in February. So if QB Cody Kessler graduates early from high school, he will enroll in January, which allows USC to sign another player in February.

Do you think Matt Grootegoed has considered coaching?
A: Hopefully. He’s an overachiever and those type of people make the best coaches and his work ethic would be perfect for coaching.
