Safety Budda Baker Decommits From Oregon

Why is this significant? Because USC is still actively recruiting him. Steve Sarkisian and Justin Wilcox follow him on twitter. And the Trojans recently had an in-home visit. Stay tuned.

    Sorry Scooter….but not a snowballs chance in hell…On this one. Baker ends up at either UCLA or Washington. Fig tech is not an option.
    fit Un!

    • FMUSC81

      Why do you think Jaleel Wadood has open up his recruitment silently …he’s not fond of another safety

      • ThaiMex

        LONG long ago, the Cadre predicted creepy kiffin would get tossed out in 3-4 years. The cadre also predicted “BOOZY” would shoot himself in the foot hiring Goat Boys replacement. We LAUGHED last year while fans of FIG TECH boasted of the incoming recruiting class! It’s been a while since we’ve been wrong about anything! Fig tech has TWO chances of landing Baker…and “SLIM” has just left the building.
        fit Un knuckleheads!
        (BTW….Wadood is a UCLA LOCK!)

        • FIGHTONtoVICTORY

          You were all also predicting winning the south.

          • ThaiMex

            “ALL”????? Who the heck is “ALL”? DEFINE ALL! Show me ALL!
            Torgan hogwash as usual…O.K…..MAYBE one newbie renegade cadre member goofed (UCLA finished 2nd)..but HONESTLY….how many of you knuckleheads jumped on the bandwagon 2 years ago and TRULY believed SUCks was #1 (the great year of #1 to UN!!!!!)????? Our record is GOSPEL when compared to LOWLY Fig Tech!
            fit UN!!!

            Sucks not being able to get into USC for you now wasn’t it?

          • anno nimus

            Huhhh it must have sucked for YOU being rejected by UCLA and landing at the University of second choice… second rate education, 3 times more expensive than UCLA. Lmfao

          • Ray Reyes

            USC was my FIRST choice. I also applied to Notre Dame and got accepted because the priest of my church wrote a good reference for me. Yes, I’m Catholic. But I chose SC because of Cali, weather, and reputation. Ugly was never an option for me, alway thought of it as a fall back choice. Never applied, never wanted to. UCLA was never a thought for me, it truly was a NO choice, not even SECOND. And look at me now. Captain for Aeromexico, 15,000 plus or minus flying hours.

          • anno nimus

            BS. BS. BS. BS.

            Rey…come on…you make all this too easy…I’ve seen you sitting in that wooden cart (with AeroMexico “painted” on the sides) hooked up to a Donkey painted to look like a Zebra..I think the photo cost me 15 Pesos!

            This OBVIOUSLY is the same person as Charlie Bucket…how PATHETIC.

        • Marv Elapes

          You don’t need to be psychic to predict that the ruins are gonna choke away any chance of respectability next year. Because if there’s one thing history has taught us, is that we are doomed to repeat our past. Enjoy Ruins.

          • gotroy22

            That is their sad history, like a Seinfeld episode. Just when things are finally going to go right…BLAM!!!!!
            You just have to wonder how it will blow up this time: NCAA violation for driving Hollywood star’s car, star gets arrested for DUI, coach becomes so arrogant he drives off recruits, assistant coaches defect, they lose on the road to unranked team etc.

          • rusoviet

            That’s a nice list of choices for the bel-airians to self-destruct with.

          Really? I also said Town scheduled an unofficial visit to USC before it hit here on this very same blog bum…my source is solid.

          My source says you are a decent pizza delivery driver.

    • USCs Troll Killa

      Desperate for attention

  • SamEGilbert

    Me thinks that he wants to go to UCLA so he can enjoy the long commute from UGLY to Pasadena. Nothing says home field advantage like having to drive over an hour to your home stadium. UGLY Eat My Shorts!!

    • max

      U$C folks are the last people in the world to criticize the location of another university’s campus! What part of “dangerous ghetto location” do you not understand when it comes to your puny, unimpressice campus? Give me a break!

      • Ray Reyes

        He was criticizing the commute. By the way, I went to SC in the late eighties and had no problems with the campus and location at all. It is nice to tailgate on campus and walk with the band to the game, not commute by car or shuttle bus. Also, why do you put the $ sign instead of the S in USC? Is that supposed to be an insult? That’s just as LAME as your bookstore putting up the “two in a row” signage up. Where would you baby bears be without USC? You base your football team’s performance by comparing it to USC’s. Do you see us going around saying “50-0″ all the time like you pukes like to quote scores? Do you see a sign in the USC bookstore saying, “USC, winner of the last 12 out 15 against UCLA?” Of course not. UCLA IS NOT our main rival in football as much as you pukes want us to be. Notre Dame is!

        • Joseph B. Lowe

          It’s HER jealousy over the fact you could AFFORD to go to SC.

          • Ray Reyes

            Well i give Max props for actually having a true picture up of him (if it is, who knows) because when ordering your pizza and you get him as your delivery person, well, tip accordingly, LOL

      • USCs Troll Killa

        Max, with due respect, how is it possible that your Bel Air located campus has far less money than our “dangerous ghetto location?” What irony. Enjoy that 80-yard practice field and “football facility” you are planning. You can’t even fill your brand new Pauley Pavilion. Sucks to live in Bel Air and be unable to keep up with the rest of the LACC crowd.

        • anno nimus

          Huhhh, maybe because your tuition is 3 times more?

          • USCs Troll Killa

            Yeah and we get paid 3x more than you pikers too.

          • Ray Reyes

            Don’t sink to their level. Talk football and loyalty, not job salaries.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            Ray, if you think this is a USC football discussion board, I am sorry to disappoint you, my brother. Scott Wolf said in his Friday chat that preservation of free speech is far more important than a premiere, detail-oriented product with his name on it. Go read the transcript. This board is a joke and it’s empowered popping off by snot-noses like Annnnus Numbus (guarantee he’s a recent grad because all he knows about is the last two victories for them and nothing about the 20 games they trail in the series or the fact that UCLA hasn’t won a Rosebowl or anything remotely meaningful in almost 30 years) instead of meaningful dialogue for interested parties. How the LA Daily News can associate with this, I shall never know. Only an amateur would support such nonsense.

          • Ray Reyes

            Well, I believe in freedom of speech also. But that’s not the case here. This is a private company’s blog, and they have every right to censor if they want. I really don’t know what the heck is going on here. Really, I just want to come here and read about USC “inside” stuff, because after all, its called “Inside USC.” And make a few comments on the issues. But making a comment automatically makes me a target for all these idiot trolls, which angers me, and then I post something which maybe I never would in the first place. So what is going on? The trolls obviously bRUIN this, and he’s OK letting it happen. HMMMMM.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            Herein lies the proof Ray. Scott Wolf has no respect for himself or associating quality with his name. If he did, he’d prove me wrong by paying close attention to his writing (replete with type-os, mis-spellings and improper tenses) and by demanding football discussion herein rather than empowering powder blue boys and their affection with “crotches” and kicks. Pure amateur garbage.

          • SaferInWestwood

            He said loyalty AAAAHhhhhhahaha I just pissed my trogan shorts!! get this guy a poster/blogger of the week award!!
            Warning: Repeated crotch kicks can lead to brain failure

          • Ray Reyes

            You make no sense SaferInWestwood(with all the rapes and big crimes), so go back to your West Hollywood clubs and suck you know what.

          • SaferInWestwood

            Is that a pink polo???

          • Ray Reyes

            Ahhhh, poor baby. Just admitted you are nowhere near capable of getting a scholarship to come to USC!

      • Arturo

        Most of your players probably have lived at or near -or have family that live- the downtown area. You are a snob and just insulted a good portion of your team.

        • anno nimus

          The most lame reply ever.

      • Ray Reyes

        I’ll give you a break………………………….You just got it!

    • ThaiMex

      Home field advantage? Kinda like the HOME COURT advantage your basketbawl team has.
      fit Un!

      • USCs Troll Killa

        Attention everyone! ThaiMex is begging you to comment.

        • Ray Reyes

          You mean Charlie Thai Bucket Mex.

          • USCs Troll Killa

            Charlie Thai Bucket Pee Pee Wolf. If Wolf has no respect for a blog with his name on it, he and his schitzo alter-egos get no respect from me. Take pride in your work Wolf. Quit embarrassing the SC alum you are a part of by empowering trash like this from envious, jealous, unemployed pee pee’s.

          • Ray Reyes

            I’m kind of wondering too how come there are sooooo many trolls here vs. our Scout or Rivals boards. Does anyone monitor this or is this just a way to gain more traffic? I can see the ladder, as I come to see what nonsense the trolls post. So I’m thinking many of the trolls, not all, are manufactured. Think about it, Charlie and Thai type extremely alike. And as far as what Wolf posts, I agree with you Killa. He posts a ton of negative things about USC and he and the Daily News let this all go on. Nice call Troll Killa. FIGHT ON!

          • FightON

            No one really monitors except basically the developer who obviously is worried about other things.

      • Ray Reyes

        Again, nothing to say, so you revert to an attack on the field of play, in a DIFFERENT SPORT.

        • anno nimus

          UCLA kills USC on any field. .foitball, baseball, and soccer. What field were talking about?

    • USCs Troll Killa

      Maybe he can wait another 28 years with UGLY before they win a rose bowl.

  • Wayne Lusvardi

    That is some incredible film of Budda Baker. He would have a shot at replacing Marquise Lee or Dion Bailey instantly on athleticism alone let as well as his instincts and player smarts. He could have a shot at tailback as well even though that position is stacked with talent, although last year was left with only two runners able to play. He would be a big hit in LA and could be a factor in the turnaround of USC as it comes off scholarship reductions. He’s tough and would fit in with the core of leaders on the team. USC’s promised up tempo game may have its advantages in attracting talent if he decides to bring his game to USC. He could fill the Coliseum with 100,000. Interesting development.

    • anno nimus

      He’s Myles Jack’s former HS team mate, he’s looking at Washington and UCLA, only. So move on.

  • David Keeling

    Baker would be a great addition to a backfield that is very weak. Will he come down here now that Sark & Wilcox have moved? Oregon evidently is no longer the choice. It is probably between UW, UCLA & USC now and whether he wants to be too far away from his ailing mother.

  • steveg

    Sometimes the trolls just can’t take it any longer and they all show up. How fun. Nothing new ever gets said by them.

    • FightON

      Bucket claimed he was doing jury duty. Funny thing is – there were way less trolls when he wasn’t around. Probably because the same person/couple of people are behind most of the troll accounts.

      • TrojanFan3.0

        The guy posts under 10 different misfits, pathetic!!!!

        • anno nimus

          whatever happen to that pathetic “Trojan Fan” that was a regular poster on this board?

  • Helen

    Budda Baker, Adoree Jackson, JuJu Smith, Michiah Quick, Charles Nelson – Sark trying to close with some very athletic play makers.

    • Trogan Fan

      Trying being the operative word here…

      • Helen

        Trying is better than jumping ship and getting rejected by Texas like Mora!

        • Trogan Fan

          Wow, is it that bad for you guys? UW job was his as was Texas, but he’s happy at UCLA. It must kill you that you’ve just been through the Lane era only to end up with Sarknado!

          • Ray Reyes

            Hmmmm. IF Sark is bad, I will be on top of that. But, he hasn’t proven himself to be a bad HC at USC. He hasn’t seen his FIRST GAME here yet. I’M with him!!!! FIGHT ON COACH SARK! Seriously baby bruins, if you want relevance, you come here with facts, and respect. NOT talking sheeeeit like you do. You got two good wins, but a rivalry that doesn’t make.

          • Helen

            Let’s review the facts:

            * Spanos jumping ship and was named the Tennessee Titans’ linebackers coach Saturday

            * Mora interviewing left and right and rejected by Texas

            How many other rats will be fleeing the sinking ship?

      • TrojanFan3.0

        Sound all butt-hurt! Your class is sinking….hahaha!!!

        • Trogan Fan

          Lol.

        • SaferInWestwood

          AAAAAAhhhhahahahaha… .Oh your speaking from a recruit stand point for a minute there I thought you said something about coaches!!

        • anno nimus

          You don’t even believe that yourself.

    • Ray Reyes

      I still think we need the big uglies. But Adoree and Juju would be awesome.

      • anno nimus

        Juju didn’t pass the entrance exam to UCLA, which is why UCLA stopped recruiting him, but I’m sure he passed yours. How difficult can it be at USC, counting to 3 then backwards to zero?

        • Ray Reyes

          LMAO!!!! If you idiots don’t get a recruit, you have excuses why. LOLOLOLOL.

          • anno nimus

            No jacjass, UCLA simply states they stopped recruiting him, to not embarrass the recruits. As was the case with DAT, Marshawn Lynch, Desean Jackson, and your own Josh Shaw, although in Josh Shaw’s case it did leak publicly, through Shaw, not UCLA. You appear to be a geek that just recently began following CFB.

    • SaferInWestwood

      Hes also tryyyyying to keep a DLine coach Helen!!

  • Trogan Fan

    So wait…Baker didn’t commit to Sark while at UW and never really considered SC, but now that Sark, the coach who couldn’t keep local talent in washington, is at SC, the Trogans are an option? LOL.

  • FightON

    UW sites are reporting that his second favorite is Washington and he is visiting them soon.

    Say he likes UW because previous experience with Sark and he considers USC – USC is going to have to make some tough calls to drop kids if they start picking up these other decommits.

    • Trogan Fan

      Yeah, not because it’s in his backyard. Face it, if Sark couldn’t keep him at UW, there’s no way he’s going to SC.
