Does Clancy Pendergast’s new formation affect recruiting because there are only two true linebackers? For example, USC is currently using Hayes Pullard at middle linebacker and Anthony Sarao at weakside linebacker.
Lamar Dawson, who Lane Kiffin said had the best five practices of his career in spring drills, is backing up Sarao despite that praise. And if he doesn’t move to safety, Dion Bailey could play linebacker.
Would a high school linebacker think twice about coming to USC if there is one less linebacker position?
