Answer Saturday! (Part 2)

Football recruiting highlights this segment.

Q: trojancr said:
Whats your take on commits Kelvin York and Jahleel Pinner, why aren`t they ranked at the recruiting services?

A: I have mixed feelings. With the 15-scholarship limit, I don’t know that USC needs another tailback (York) other than for the fact Ed Orgeron knew him and can say he brought in another recruit. I’d rather have another offensive lineman. I like Pinner because he is big enough (6-0, 230) to play fullback or tailback in college and USC needs versatility with scholarship reductions.

Q: Edward said:
How do you think your relationship with Coach Cruz will go when you openly recommended OSU’s baseball coach to Haden?

A: I’ve spoken to him since he got the job full time and he was fine with me. We’ve had a good relationship since last summer when he replaced the ridiculous Chad Kreuter. I just thought you take a swing for the fences and try and hire the best guy out there before doing anything else.

    USC officials have stated that the school will not file a lawsuit… Is there anything stopping a player or his Parents from suing the NCAA? They are the ones being punished for something they had no part of…

  • How does Scott Wolf keep his job?

    “I just thought you take a swing for the fences and try and hire the best guy out there before doing anything else.”

    The LA Daily News had a similar approach before hiring you. But all of the monkeys were too busy playing with their poop, so you were hired.

    Kelvin York is a juco player who will be a december grad and thus not count against the 15 schol. limit for the 2012 class, but rather the ’11 class. It’s a rather low-risk play on a guy who could provide an alternative to the baster/morgan style at rb.

    York had a outstanding 2010 season, is a (5’11″/225 lb.) all-purpose back who could be starting sometime next season as a junior. Pinner hopefully could redshirt, and be a stud at fullback through 2016. But, early commitments don’t mean squat, and USC might only have half of their allotted 15/75 available for 2012.
