Linebacker D.J. Calhoun Decommits

With no official head coach for next season, it’s not really surprising if a recruit decommits. A new coach will get hired and have a chance to convince recruits like Calhoun to go to USC.

Perhaps USC knew this for awhile and it is the reason the Trojans took a couple less-heralded linebackers the past two weeks. This also reminds me how Lane Kiffin said he no longer got excited when a recruit committed because commitments were essentially worthless these days.

  • and then, depression set in….

      Kind of like what you experienced when USC rejected your admission application.

      • i thought Dr’s were to Do No Harm??? your comments are hurtful.

        • TrojanFamily

          Oh behalf of Dr. Paul, I apologize. I’ll speak to the Admissions department and see if you can be a special-needs admit.

          • those words are hurtful, too, if you want to know the truth, but frankly, i doubt you EVEN CARE.

  • Stu Azole

    Wow, I’m shocked. Funny part is that he really wants to be a Bruin but Mora’s not having it. Trojans gunna lose a guy to ASU – but I guess that’s fitting since ASU helped end the Lane Era.

    Regarding the hunt for a new head coach, I thought of a possible candidate who might be available at the end of this season, as he is currently on the hot seat in the SEC…. and that would be Mark Richt….thoughts?

      Much rather have Art Briles. The best way to play defense in the PAC is to have a great offense.We need to dictate the pace of the game and not Oregon or ASU. The ball-controlling offense works when you have a great defense and great 3rd down offense. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to play great defense in the PAC week-in week-out. If we are giving up 62 points, may as well score 63.

      Richt doesn’t strike me as being LA enough. Good coach though. Regarding Calhoun, is he really the best LB in Cali? It is tough to say. Kiffin recruited nice 4 and 5 star guys and that is great but was/is he a good evaluator of talent? Lesser known recruits aren’t necessarily bad- a good comparison would be the U. Comparable talent bases in an urban area, Miami loaded up on local talent even though a lot of these guys were “only” three star guys. Good recruiting along the trenches seems to me to be the best answer.

    • Hey SUC’s

      None. Vic the Brick is a shoe-in as the next SUC HC.

      • TrojanFamily

        You really need to go to troll school.

  • UCLA Owns the Rose Bowl

    pUSC’s class is currently ranked #9–in the Pac 12. No coach, no quarterback, no momemtum.

  • Fred Sampson

    If nothing else Ed Orgeron can project and spot Talent , so if he needs to pick up a Linebacker somewhere else I’m sure he will. USC has had way too many 4 and 5 Star recruits on their roster that have not produced over the years especially on that offensive line (Andre Walker and John Martinez) so these de-commits means nothing !!!

    Lose on LB to gain another.. Now we need DB’s and a coach
