Morning Buzz

It sounds like safety Leon McQuay III’s commitment last week took away defensive end Kylie Fiits scholarship.

USC used to tell recruits they could only receive a scholarship if they graduated early because it needed to save Signing Day scholarships for the best players.

Now the opposite occurred as it needed to tell a player to wait till June to enroll. This was always a danger from getting so many early commitments.

The question is whether Fitts can be convinced to remain a Trojan or if he is too upset and will go elsewhere. UCLA and Washington seem particularly eager to take him. And will USC have a February scholarship for Fitts if he waits to decide?

    Fitts is turning into a HUGE pr nightmare for SC. Every bit of good Pete did in establishing local ties is being blown apart by Lane. LOL!

    • Independent_George

      Oh no, Sped! Clearly you do not read the paysite USC blogs. Don’t you know this is all a conspriacy created by ESPN?

      Yup. Dan Weber, someone I used to like, pretty much went there.

      • Spedjones

        Doesn’t really matter. What matters is what the kids are seeing and saying, and what they are seeing and saying isn’t good.

        • SoCal_Native_59

          Yes and Kylie says SC is a top program with a great staff. You f-ng bruin tool.

          • Spedjones

            haha, believe what you will. Kid’s got more class than Lane, that’s for sure.

          • SoCal_Native_59

            Just look for yourself dipshit, he tweeted that last night. If you are going to keep your head shoved up my ass change your screen name to Spedturd. Piece of bRuin crap.

          • Spedjones

            Of course he did. It’s a nice thing to do. Kid loved SC more than anything. Like I said, he’s got more class than Lane. He’s also visiting UCLA soon.

          • SoCal_Native_59

            If that’s what he feels is best, good for him. As I posted I wish HIM the best.

    Speedie has it right, kids talk, they see how they get played by Kiffin. He turned down a die hard Trojan for a mumbling moron from Florida. Kiffin is a horror scene when it comes to PR.

      If this McQuay turns into an academic bust, what a waste, when they could have had a guy that bleeds C and G.

        The kid has a NINETEEN ACT !! How the hell is he gonna survive at USC ?

        • marvgoux1

          You think he’ll end up like Wiley?

  • Swoll Francis

    I guess Kiffen must of already turned down the Chargers if their talking to Mora, right you guys?

    • Golden Trojan

      Hopefully for Charger fans, they don’t want him. I’d rather have Mora than Kiffin any day.

  • dtksr1 @dslextreme.com

    I can see both Kiffin & Haden are not rushing to a microphone to explain their side of this story. They probably have none. I am now putting Haden (Mr. Smiley) in the same boat with Kiffin, as I don’t see him admonishing anything Kiffin is or has done.

    • Golden Trojan

      Haden is doing nothing to run a respectable Athletic Dept. What happened to all the we’re going to do it the right way now?

    • dtksr1 @dslextreme.com

      Seriously… you get up every morning and look at your sports news source, you are thrilled to read a positive happens to the football program, but then you instinctively hold your breath there is something following it that Kiffin has screwed up on… I keep waiting for the next train wreak and…. it happens.

        Think “Groundhog Day” with Kiffin

      You can’t comment on these sort of things…NCAA violation

  • SoCal_Native_59

    “With everything that has occurred I want people to know SC is one of the nation top programs and has one of the top coaching staffs”. This was a tweet from Kylie Fitts last night. That about says it.

    • Golden Trojan

      Let’s hope Orgeron has been doing some serious damage control with Fitts last night.

      • SoCal_Native_59

        This is a great kid.

      • marvgoux1

        Did it go something like this, “Pay no attention to what we said last week, this week we are telling you the truth!”

  • http://www.facebook.com/tom.oday.524 Tom Oday

    I thought Fitts already signed a LOI. Doesn’t that guarantee him a spot if he qualifies academically?

  • Seriously

    Mcquy has a 4.28 GPA. Enough of the nonsense. Either do your homework or keep quite.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ben-Doverz/1423558008 Ben Doverz

      HIS ACT is 19, do YOUR homework dumbass. His GPA could be 5, what classes is he taking? The bottom line is, he can’t do well on the standardized tests since his SAT scores is pretty much in line with his ACT score. He’s a moron.

      • Seriously

        Is he accepted at USC Einstein? Apparently he’s smart enough to enroll. All A grades arent the same as all D grades arent the same. What college did you play for. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • RallyMonkeyUSA

    Please just be patient Kylie. Trojan fans love you and want you to come to USC. 9 weeks is not a long time.

    • Golden Trojan

      Really, pick up a class or two at a JC and hit the weight room.

  • betomas

    Kyle, it sucks that you were told one day before you planned to make your big move onto the campus. I feel bad for you and the disrespect that you were shown. USC was still worried about your injury and that cast doubt on your effectiveness. Best of luck to you and your family in going to a competitive program.
