A lot of attention was paid to ESPN anchor John Anderson calling USC a “clown college.” But I think analyst Danny Kanell’s comments deserve more scrutiny. Kanell said UCLA could take over in recruiting.
“I think this is a huge opportunity for UCLA to take a firm grasp of that city in recruiting, in the state there, and really taking over as a powerhouse in the state. There is so much talent on the West Coast,” Kanell said.
As much as I enjoy a contrarian and sense of humor, Kanell’s comments simply do not match up with reality. USC’s recruiting class is ranked No. 10 and some analysts already say it could finish No. 1.
Is USC a clown college? It hired Lane Kiffin. But recruiting is always near the top. That’s not debatable. Listen to Kanell here
