More Stars

Earlier, I mentioned safety Tahaan Goodman was one of the top uncommitted players attending the Rising Stars camp at USC this week. Here are some other top safeties/cornerbacks attending: Jalen Ramsey, Max Redfield and Priest Willis.
Redfield is probably the most likely of the group to commit to USC.

One of the top uncommitted players attending the USC Rising Stars camp this week, safety Tahaan Goodman of Rancho Cucamonga, might not be able to participate because he sprained his ankle over the weekend at the Rivals camp in Atlanta.

Nellum Qualifies

USC sprinters Bryshon Nellum made the U.S. Olympic team in the 400-meter dash and teammate Josh Mance qualified for the relay team in the Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore.
Nellum was sixth with about 70 meters left in the race but finished third at the wire with a personal best of 44.80. Nellum’s time moved him from 10th to fourth on USC’s all-time 400m dash list.
“I kept faith in God, kept going day by day, kept working hard and stayed dedicated,” Nellum said.
“We have worked on fi nishes and they both did that very well today,” USC track coach Ron Allice said. “All the credit goes to them. To be able to handle all of the pressure, and there is no more pressure than that, and to beat great competition including a former
Olympic champion.”

Ruiz Signs

Bishop Amat iinfielder Rio Ruiz signed a contract with the Houston Astros that includes a bonus of a reported $1.85 million. Ruiz, who was going to play at USC if he did not turn pro, was sidelined during the season following surgery to remove a blood clot.

USC graduate Allyson Felix finished in a dead heat for third place in the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic Trials. The top three finishers go to the London Olympics so now USA Track and Field must decide how to break the tie between Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh.
There will likely be a runoff although a coin flip was also mentioned.
