When a new coach takes over a program, you often see a change in recruiting. And that is what’s happening right now since Steve Sarkisian took over. Some recruits like St. John Bosco wide receiver Shay Fields and Corona Centennial defensive end Austin Maloata said they have not really heard from USC the past two weeks.
They are not officially being dropped but encouraged to consider other colleges. Fields and Maloata are not the only ones. Sarkisian is reshaping the class. Ed Orgeron took some unconventional commitments during his two-month stint and it will be interesting to see how many actually sign.
