Which recruit that USC missed out on in recent seasons hurt the most? I say without a doubt who I think it was in this segment.
Q: trojancr said:
You keep bringing up the names of this former usc commits constantly in your blog: Alshon Jeffery, Seantrel Henderson, Vontaze Burfict, Manti Te’o and Deanthony Thomas.
Giving their on/off field performances and potential, which one you think was the biggest loss for the Trojans?
A: Without a doubt I would say Burfict or Te’o. With one of them, the defense plugs a big hole in the middle that existed the past two seasons and probably wins three-to-four more games. There would be as many collapses last season, for sure, with an eraser like Te’o or Burfict anchoring the defense instead of trying to stick a circle into a square like the poor decision to move Devon Kennard to middle linebacker.
