Picture Of The Week

CLOCKDefinitely one of the most-discussed items this week was the new clock installed at USC this week, which I asked if it was stolen from Main Street at Disneyland.

The Hallandale, Fla., native is believed to be down to LSU and USC with the Tigers a heavy favorite. How heavy? All 10 recruiting analysts with 247 sports predict Battle will choose LSU.

Dewayne Dedmon Goes Undrafted

We now know the answer to whether Dewayne Dedmon should have turned pro early (not that we did not know beforehand).

But many teams worked Dedmon out, including the Lakers, who drafted 7-foot power forward Ryan Kelly from Duke. But Kelly can shoot.

Baby (And Other) Quarterbacks Buzz

The most intriguing thing to me about the Rising Stars camp was that David Sills (aka the Baby Quarterback) was joined by Josh Rosen of St. John Bosco and Ricky Town of St. Bonaventure.

So who looked best?

According to sources I’ve spoken to, Rosen was the most impressive performer and had the strongest arm. He is bigger than Sills, who committed to USC as an eighth-grader. He does not have a scholarship offer from USC yet, but Michigan, UCLA and Tennessee have offered him already.

All three QBs are from the Class of 2015, so when does USC offer Rosen? Or would that be politically incorrect with the highly publicized Sills committed?
