    State Championship Tee shirts for all!!!

    • USCDAN1986

      City then State ..Lol

      • Michael Guarino

        This year it will be the California/Nevada Championship —-so we are making progress!

        • gotroy22

          When does Lynn Swann add San Jose State and San Diego State to the schedule to make our state championship official?

          • Pudly76

            I wanna play the banana slugs too!

          • gotroy22

            Too bad the Gauchos dropped football…

          • Pudly76

            They put on a mean waterpolo tournament though!!

          • steveg

            It would make our schedule equal to Alabama’s.

          • USCDAN1986

            Long Beach too lol

          • Michael Guarino

            My sources tell me that Swann has already requested that San Diego and San Jose “stand down.” He’s waiting for their reply.

  • Golden Trojan

    Looks like a stellar group if Helton can land them all.

  • Pete Smith

    Where are the O and D lineman???

    • Sas

      He already visited late November but I hear we have made up a lot of ground and look good for Penei Sewell from UT. He’s a significant OLineman being 6-5 349, #1 OT in the West but also ranked as the #2 OG Overall.
      For what it’s worth SS picked him to USC a few days ago.

      • Jack B

        So what is he? An OT or an OG? Do these recruiting services have a clue? Obviously, they don’t on many occasions as is obvious by their star rankings.

        The correct OL position obviously makes a lot of difference at USC. A guy like Toa L couldn’t play OT if he tried, was humiliated in big games and some USC people fantasize he’ll be an All-America at OC in 2018.

        • Sas

          It’s coaching.
          Bama will make this kid a good OT. OSU, WISC, UW, Stanford will all make or at least try to make this kid a good OT. I hear he’s suitable to play both at a high level. USC just likes to reverse kids positions. We have Toa Lobendahn at OT when everyone knows he belongs inside somewhere. Helton is a soft and safe coach. He’d rather go with what may look safe in a smart player like Toa than an actual OT, but that would mean they would have to coach and prepare them to play OT which we don’t do very well.

          • Jack B

            I know you think coaching is everything, but sometimes pure talent is also an overwhelming factor. The vast majority of talent signed is best suited for one position over another. No amount of coaching excellence could have made Toa a decent OT. He simply doesn’t have what it takes physically or athletically to play there. At least that’s what a big-time college OL coach tells me.

          • Sas

            I agree with you. I didn’t like the idea of Toa playing OT way back in spring because he’s not.

          • Jack B

            We obviously had no one else because we are so thin on the OL. Still stunning a school like USC has to pull this crap. Since Toa was so pathetic (from what I saw at least), we would have been better off IMO letting some other younger guy sink or swim.

          • Sas

            My thoughts exactly.

          • fast fred

            Ah, more inside info.

          • Brent4c

            Stop interfering w the it’s all Calloway’s fault mantra. This is where the sanctions plays major role. We took Toa to fill a specific spot. It hasn’t worked out and now we are scrambling to find a spot for him. Meanwhile other schools took 2-3 guys for a spot so when one doesn’t work out (Toa) odds are one of the others will. Multiply this scenario by 3 years and this is why we’ve had OL issues. Not saying Calloway is the best OL coach, but the bullets he needs are just now being loaded in the chamber. The guys from last year can be very very good the next couple of years.

          • Jack B

            It’s 2018 and you’re still using the sanctions as an excuse. Have at it.

            Well, that doesn’t float with a lot of us anymore. USC has had plenty of time to fix its OL problem and hasn’t done it. And USC isn’t just some regular program. We’ve got recruiting clout a lot of schools can only dream of. But because of poor OL prep evaluations and poor coaching and weight room development, we’ve stunk up the joint against anyone any good.

            USC’s runners are so frequently trapped behind the LOS and thrown for losses, it’s not even funny.

            So go ahead and keep making all the excuses for USC you want. The school received sanctions in June 2010. Sorry, that dog just don’t hunt anymore. Toa should have never been placed in a position to play where he can’t perform worth a lick. That’s on USC’s coaches, unless you want to blame Toa. One way or another,

            USC has nobody to blame but itself for our horrible OL. The sooner people quit blaming USC’s problems on the severe, unfair sanctions, the better. It’s time for USC to get a grip and figure out whether it’s gonna be a punishing, physical team or not. This is what Helton promised, but has failed to deliver so far.

            Callaway’s obviously no great shakes. We’re gonna have to live with it. That doesn’t mean we all have to like it just because some do.

        • Pudly76

          He’s a more natural guard, his arms aren’t quite that long.

          • Jack B

            Thanks for the info. That’s what I as looking for.

        • Trojan96

          He’s a guard for sure.

      • JustOwns

        “Mama, I’m coming home”

      • steveg

        Man you would think with So. Cal being close enough for the family to come to games and the strong samoan connection USC has they should be a strong contender. Unless Alabama is going to relocate this family or Oregon is going to fly his family to every game on the Nike jet.

        • Sas

          Yep. The other day Tua Tagovailoa was took a picture next to a ROLLS ROYCE ON twitter. If that’s not begging for the NCAA to investigate than I don’t know what is.

    • Pudly76

      How many d-linemen do you want? O-linemen we’ll be short on this year, unless we get a transfer…

      • Jack B

        Typical. What’s new? The one great weakness in the USC program for years. It’s just more difficult to rebuild a poor OL than any other part of the team – at least it has been for USC.

        That old also-ran Callaway doesn’t help any, I’m sure. Imagine what it’s like to be recruited by Callaway compared to the real world-beater OL coaches out there. Not pretty.

        • Pudly76

          Well it will be interesting to see how the Sewell sweepstakes shakes out, between he and Irvin and ITS and Griffin, we are going head to head with bama on every one…can we keep them home?

          • Jack B

            We can always tell them they’ll be lost in the shuffle at uber-talented and far away ALA. During the past 3-4 years of Carroll’s career, that argument worked against us. Turnaround would seem to be fair play.

          • Pudly76

            Or show their parents the pic of the former bama db (bobby Humphrey)arrested last night stealing a $15 phone charger from an Uber driver…

          • Jack B

            “Former” being the key word here. Doesn’t matter, but I presume you are joking anyway. Hah!

          • Pudly76

            Plays for the Ravens now..was in town for the championship party. But yeah, I was joking.

    • Trojan96

      D Line is more important than O Line. We should have 3 DT and One DE in this class. We currently have 16 O- Linemen on the roster. It will be a huge need in 2019 but not for now.

      • Jack B

        Keneche Udeze is the guy we need to keep. He’s the key to everything else good on the DL for now.

    • gotroy22

      Where’s the beef?

  • Sas

    I think Irvin may be in now and Devon Williams the 5-Star WR from Lancaster may be out because of grade issues. Just what I heard from a friend. So a DB for a WR.

    • USCDAN1986

      Shuffling the deck!

      • Sas

        Hopefully. And better we know now than him becoming ineligible later.

        • USCDAN1986

          True. He does look like a good ftbll player.. But is it worth it? .. The kids need the grades to stay eligible.. I’d rather have a kid that is solid academically..

          • Sas

            Me too. We have enough WRs anyways and I don’t believe we’ll be missing out on the next Randy Moss.

          • USCDAN1986

            Any idea who the other qb is looking at?.. Read they were looking to bring in anpther kid.. As a preferred!.

          • Jack B

            What good QB is gonna come in as a preferred walk-on? Sounds like fantasy land in today’s recruiting world to me.

          • USCDAN1986

            I agree.. Who knows.. Maybe it was represented wrong by the 247 blogger..

          • Pudly76

            We always get preferred walkons, usually as emergency role players…

          • Jack B

            Never at QB though. That’s an expensive death sentence at USC.

          • Pudly76

            Of course it’s a death sentence, kid would know it going in. We have usually 3-4 preferred walkons a year, don’t know why it matters, I’ve never paid them any mind.

          • Jack B

            It obviously doesn’t matter in the least.

            Not sure how it even came up here since it would be so superfluous. I might care if the guy was an OL, where anybody could literally turn out important.

          • Pudly76

            USCDAN brought it up..walkons (preferred or otherwise) are generally just sideline filler and practice fodder, as much as I hate to say it..occasionally you get a backup, but not often.

          • Jack B

            You would agree that if we don’t get Sewell, we flopped all over the place on the OL, our weakest spot, right?

          • Pudly76

            Yes. And still think we need at least 1 grad transfer on the line too…for insurance if nothing else.

          • Chris

            Unless lightning strikes twice and we get a kid like baker mayfield, but most likely not going to happen again for a long time.

          • Jack B

            Hah, hah, hah. Ya, I’m sure a Baker Mayfield clone is looking to be a Trojan QB. That’s like hearing people proclaim JDR could be the next great one at USC because of Pete Carroll. Good comedy relief, worth its weight in gold!

          • Chris

            Agreed. Oklahoma hit lottery with that walk on. I also agree on JDR, not too excited about that “prospect”.

          • Jack B

            JDR will always have some support here simply because he’s a Trojan – even though he has a losing NFL record over many, many years and never accomplished diddly. I don’t get it, but heck, it’s only a crazy little message board.

          • Pudly76

            I love me some JDR, just not as HC and not yet..but love him as a Trojan…

          • Jack B

            Ya, he was a great LB. A purely mediocre NFL coach, yet many Trojans run around like nuts proclaiming him the next Trojan miracle coach. Bizarre.

          • steveg

            Would be a good DC

          • Pudly76

            Might be..could be…never know if a ship floats till it hits the water.

          • Sas

            I didn’t know we were looking at another QB still. I know we were really interested in the kid from Corona that had a mission planned. Could it be him?

          • steveg

            If his grades are suspect perhaps the greyshirt is a good route for him if he wants to play at USC. Otherwise the clearing house has a big say in his future. Some schools have special programs for those that have bad gpa.

          • Sas

            Could be.

    • Jack B

      Doesn’t it make you wonder why we are hanging with a guy at this late stage who has grade problems?

      Since we have space problems anyway, you’d think we’d be focused on guys who were sure bets to get into school and stay eligible. It’s not like USC doesn’t have plenty of interest from those who don’t already have academic issues.

      • James Caso

        Could Williams be a Grey Shirt?

        • Jack B

          I would guess he’s too highly ranked to be amenable to that. One of the real weaknesses of recruiting services is that they don’t factor in academic issues.

          • Pudly76

            Devon is in if he wants in. He’s in Oregon this weekend so we’ll see, but Tee really Love this kid..

          • Jack B

            Is it true he’s an academic risk?

          • Pudly76

            Not what I’ve heard…

          • Jack B

            Hope we stay away from those types. It’s just not worth it much of the time and there are so many other good alternatives.

          • Pudly76

            Chris Olave is the backup plan to Williams…but if his grades were bad we wouldn’t spin our wheels here,just bad info, kid is on his Oregon visit and somebody’s spinning the info incase he goes back…ducks already took the Hall kid from LB Poly yesterday, doubt they want two the same size.

          • Jack B

            247 says Olave is 92% to OHIO ST, with ucla and MICH as the alternatives. Doesn’t sound like much of a back-up plan.

          • Pudly76

            Actually a great plan, it’s why he hasn’t committed yet.

          • Jack B

            You like those odds, huh?

            If 247 said an uncommitted kid was 92% likely to go to USC at this late stage, I sure wouldn’t be worried about losing him to OHIO ST, regardless of their stature.

          • Pudly76

            I do. If you check Sewell before the ruin game when he visited there was probably 0 chance for SC…same with Williams…it’s why Helton and these guys are great..let’s see them earn their money..as far as Olave goes, we asked him not to sign early incase a spot opens.

          • Jack B

            I’m wondering why the recruiting sites, who are in this stuff 24/7 and it’s their livelihood, don’t know what you know and still say the kid is almost 100% Buckeye? What are they good for if they don’t know basic info like you just passed along?

          • Pudly76

            I’ve said many times, these services are slanted towards teams in the east and as such mention SC as infrequently as possible..to the point of lowering a recruits rating once he commits to us.
            I will say again, a week AFTER he signed with us Levi Jones was a 55/45 split between FLA and FSU…

          • Jack B

            I can actually understand the Jones problem. Once LOI Day passes, the wheels stop running. But to be in the heat of the final battle and not recognize what you said about Olave is totally humorous. Does SS also predict this kid to USC if all else falls through? And why is Olave so acceptable to being a 2nd class citizen at USC? A lot of these kids would no way put up with that treatment, especially when they can go to programs like OHIO ST, which are superior to USC at the moment.

          • Pudly76

            Well the Jones problem only highlighted the previous weeks predictions…even I had him as a Trojan. His family wearing Trojan gear might have been a bit obvious.
            As far as Olave, I really think he just wants to stay home and play..many kids grow up seeing themselves in those colors, I know I did, would have loved the chance.

          • Jack B

            So SS has predicted Olave to USC, right? He would know.

          • Pudly76

            There are people who believe it won’t come to that…some people believe Williams. I do.

          • Jack B

            People say a lot of stuff about recruiting and 50% of it is pure BS at any given point of time. Then, when time passes, they just conveniently say that things changed.

            In pursuit of the truth here, the only true justice there is to be found on any message board.

          • Pudly76

            You know how I am.. total homer. That said when I chose Carmen to SC I had good reason and stood by it…I still do. That said everyone in recruiting from SS to 24/7 reserves the right of correction when it comes to teen age kids..it’s the way it is.

          • Pudly76

            Choose to go with Williams, this time.

          • steveg

            For sure, why pay a site when we have the great info for free from our guys on here.

          • steveg

            If the guy has grade issues it really limits where he can go. Perhaps Fresno.

          • Pudly76

            I’ve heard he has no grade issues..

          • fast fred

            Does it matter at SC?

      • USCDAN1986

        Was reported USC offered 3 preferred walk ons … One a K … The other was OL and FB.. Anyone see the info?

      • Pudly76

        There was an irish rag I read Sunday, and it was the most depressing thing I’ve read in a long time about their recruiting and chances to fill out this class…you would have thought we beat the crap out of them the way it was written and the level of players they’ looking at to fill out their class… then across town you’ve got chocolate chip and all his three star juco boys..

    • usc fan

      Williams grade are fine spoke with him yesterday

      • Pudly76

        LIAR…

        • Jack B

          Some of these idiot Trolls are too much. They’ll say anything.

          • Pudly76

            He should never have picked MD and USC as his fairytale schools…

          • fast fred

            Relax—they don’t have the “inside info” like you!

          • Jack B

            What’s wrong idiot Fred? Nobody ever tell you anything. You still need to get out of that closet.

            Do you ever get tired of following me around or do you enjoy being my little Inside USC puppy dog? Now bark like a dog and go fetch for me, idiot Freddy.

          • steveg

            A lot of guys get tidbits and contribute and then we put it all together. If you ever had anything you could contribute also, but alas, you got nothing, as usual.

        • steveg

          He was there yesterday telling us he thought Helton was getting fired.

          • GABBY702

            He said JDR has his own office at USC

      • Pudly76

        And you were the same one saying kelly would steal all our recruits..all you ever do is lie about who you are, where you’re from and who you know..

      • GABBY702

        only in your dreams!

      • Sas

        Really? Good. I hope he’s in then.

    • Pudly76

      There is a chance for 10 more signees

      • steveg

        10 more slots? So somebody is leaving for sure.

        • Pudly76

          A chance.. why are coaches making inhome visits if there wasn’t a plan?

          • steveg

            The only one I have heard anything about is the OL that is transferring. Makes sense to me, coaches would concentrate on the right now LOI guys.

      • Sas

        Wow!

    • JustOwns

      What, Williams can’t basket weave?

      • steveg

        He can but seeing as how he isnt going to ucla he doesn’t need to wear a puccy hat.

        • Jack B

          ucla wouldn’t be in on him unless he likes to steal stuff. That’s the key to ucla entrance.

        • JustOwns

          Steveg, why do you wear the Official bozo u,”Ripple and Puke,” practice jockstrap as a flu mask?

  • Michael Guarino

    Scott: USCDAN says you need to add Jack Del Rio to the list.

    • USCDAN1986

      ✌Yep!

    • Chris

      JDR is already there, has been for weeks. Has an office right next to Swann. All of the players, recruits and coaches already know he is taking over after signing day. And…. nope, none of that is true. And if it were, it would be sad, because he is not a good coach.

      • USCDAN1986

        Chris you are just a keyboard warrior.. You have no idea whats going on.. You will see, Helton is not the future.. He will not be leading the football past this year..JDR is a good football coach and will lead USC to great things..

        • Chris

          You post nonsense.

          • USCDAN1986

            Other than SAS, JB,76 and a few .. I’m probably in the mix for dialed in info.. Helps when you have the BAT PHONE to the Athletic Dept.. I have been around USC for 5 decades..

          • Chris

            Cool. I have zero connections. It’s still nonsense. If he were there, as you say he is, it would have been reported. Recruits and players would have spoken about it. The coaches would have. The beat reporters would have mentioned something. It’s fantasy land.

          • Rock2112

            It has reached the point of pure delusion. Time for USCDAN1986 to abandon this moniker and start a new one. He went out on a limb here and there’s nothing to it. He said it was “getting out there” because there were vague reports of changes to USC’s staff, and then we learned that was a reference to Keary Colbert being promoted. Why wasn’t he leaking that correct info if he is so “connected,” instead of something that doesn’t line up with any reality?

          • USCDAN1986

            Why ?

          • fryer tuck

            …and didn’t learn a thing, what a shame.

          • USCDAN1986

            Having a high 6 figure income.. I beg to differ.. Lol.. Back to the french fries and toilets you go! Beat it clown!

          • Pudly76

            You know, there are no small jobs, and as such somebody needs to do those things too..why do you defame hard working people, most of whom are immigrants,like my parents, who work very hard trying to make a better life? Just because you don’t have the right response regarding JDR?

          • steveg

            I personally would love to have JDR on staff in charge of the defense, that is about it. He has not shown much as an HC in my humble opinion.

          • Lunderful

            I appreciate your style.

          • USCDAN1986

            Oh now you too?. Im 3rd gen mexican italian american. Great grandparents came to the US with zero.. I know the sacrifices of all people.. Im the product of hardworking parents.. A ptoud alum of USC .. My grandmother and father also attended USC along with other family members over the years.. My response to him (him only) me teasing him.. I dont hold back.. Lol yet I do enjoy the bantering with everyone.. Thats when I have time.. Im actually a retired executive from the sports and entertainment industry.. My first job was a paper boy for the old Herald Examiner at 10… No harm nor foul.. All good..

            Slam Dunk, Pudly. Wisdom and Modesty. Keep up the terrific posts.

          • fast fred

            I don’t remember you standing up to the people who make fun of “just owns”!

          • Pudly76

            Evidently there’s hope for your short term memory loss..won’t ever see me standing for owns..up or otherwise.

          good on defense too,bet he knows an ‘O’ line coach

        • fryer tuck

          The USC/UCLA game in 2015 is very instructive, if you will take the time to analyze the coaches, the players and how the program had evolved. Helton is on the same curve entering 2018 and will be the head coach at USC for a long time to come.

          • steveg

            Interesting point of view, optimistic, but insightful. I think most people on here believe if Helton had a top notch staff he would be here a long time.

          • Michael Guarino

            I agree. [So why isn’t Helton hell bent on acquiring a top notch staff? What’s holding him back]??

          • Brent4c

            Helton doesmt have the $ for staff to simply outbid people. Not sure that’s the best route anyway. LSU tries that and it hasn’t worked out so well. Their OC is gone and their DC extorted am insane amount of $ from them in a contract extension. All this coach bashing is the same stuff people on here said about BKU. As our OL from past 2 years mature we’ll see how our coaching stacks up. Calloway isn’t popular on here, but he has a pretty impressive resume for those who take the time to look into that stuff. Nansen also was considered useless as a coach for many years, but seemed to do pretty well the past 2 years.

          • Michael Guarino

            All kidding aside….& forgetting resumes…and judging by what I see with my own two eyes—–the coaches who are producing are Clay himself and Clancy. And, if both Deland and Udeze are out the door, I don’t see much of a “staff” left for those two guys to work with. And, if they fail….and if the next coach has more $ to assemble a first rate staff ….USC will have treated Coach Helton pretty damn unfairly.

          • gotroy22

            Udeze is leaving?????????????????

          • Michael Guarino

            He’s “looking”, gt.

        • Chris

          I apologize for the nonsense part. I don’t want to be mean spirited. Too many of those on this board. I just can’t believe that none of this has been reported anywhere else. Like I said I have zero connections, I know what I read. I haven’t read anything about del Rio other than nfl coordinator jobs. You and I have the same hope, more NC’s for our boys. Fight on!!!

        • Peaceful Warrior

          Agree Helton is on shaky ground but JDR? He has never won anything as a coach and has under 500 career record over 12 seasons.

          • USCDAN1986

            I understand JDR is 93-94 as a head coach.. He is a good football guy liken to Pete Carroll.. I would give him a shot.. Not on the JDR bandwagon.. Would actually like any qualified #2 guy on any of the top staffs… who.. Someone like a Kiffin type without the BS ..

          • Peaceful Warrior

            Carroll was perfect for college football not sure JDR is in that same mode. I still have hope for Helton but I think the admin/Swann are cutting him off at the knees. I would just hope the next guy would be well respected and have a great record.

          • USCDAN1986

            I had this same dialogue with Jack B..

            JDR is 93-94 in his career as a head coach in the NFL.

            PC was 41-49 in his first 6 seasons as a head coach..
            Jets 6-10
            Pats 27-21
            Seahawks 14-18

            PC was just a diamond in the rough.. And probably Haden’s 10th choice to be the head coach..

            JDR could be that guy too.. We dont know!

          • Peaceful Warrior

            Agree there is a shot of JDR doing well, but can’t we once hire somebody that is ready for the job with an excellent resume?

          • USCDAN1986

            That I agree..

          • Grammymb

            Considering Mike Garrett hired him…

          • USCDAN1986

            True..

          • Jack B

            Sorry USCDAN. Hate to tell you this but JDR will never win a Super Bowl and never win a NC. He doesn’t have anywhere near the personality magic of Carroll, who could talk dogs off a meat wagon.

            Please stop even trying to compare coaching loser JDR to miracle man Carroll. JDR needs to lick his wounds and get a coordinator job. I wish him the best but keep him away from USC. The last thing we need is another failed inbred experiment.

          • Chris

            Pete is a hall of Fame coach. It’s not even close. To compare is silly. Pete is a master motivator. Super bowl and national championship rings. JDR is a .500 guy.

          • Peaceful Warrior

            Pete when he came to USC was fired NFL coach with very limited success. Nobody is making a comparison with Pete Carroll of today.

          • Jack B

            The Pete Carroll of today is probably headed downhill if you watched Seattle this season. Personally, I don’t think the team ever got over their massive choke job against the Patriots in the SB. And the Seahawks currently have the worst OL in the NFL. That’s on Carroll.

            But Carroll’s USC legacy has so entranced some SC fans, they think JDR automatically has that same Carroll magic, when he obviously doesn’t. If JDR wants to be our d coord some day, fine, hire him, so long as he has no objections to recruiting his arse off. Otherwise, sayonara JDR.

          • Peaceful Warrior

            Agree with your assessment on Carroll. Same thing happened at USC. I think it is a combination of Pete getting bored and people getting tired of his methods.

          • gotroy22

            And Pete getting jealous of Chow getting credit for the 20014 NC team’s offense. If Pete could have kept his ego in check, SC wins 6 more NCs with Chow as OC with Leinart, Booty and Sanchez as QBs.

  • Yale O. Leftwich

    KU ??? news???

  • hoohoolianFUCLA

    All this speculation over so many recruits signing with us and not a word on the few spaces we have available…

    • Trojan96

      We should have 4 more signed in addition to the 4 who are committed but not signed. Both top corners, Solomon and Julius. I guess we’ll make room if Sewell commits, but he will probably not come.

      • hoohoolianFUCLA

        Until another name drops from the roster or a commit Blueshirts, we have 3 spots open for JT, St. Brown and 1 other.

        Ryan Abraham confirms this on 247sports:

        82 currently on the 2018 roster (including the early signees) and that leaves 3 spots. Where that leaves Trout and the 5 other guys discussed here as ‘locks to come’ or “must-gets” is a wonderment.

        6 transfers would be a lot to expect.

        • Pudly76

          Driving you crazy? Is it?

          • steveg

            I would imagine everyone at this point.

          • steveg

            What day is signing day?

          • Pudly76

            Wed, feb 7, I believe.

          • steveg

            That’s right, 1st Wednesday in Feb. Thanks.

          • hoohoolianFUCLA

            Which:
            Not knowing the number of recruits we can sign or people still talking as if we can sign 25?

            Either/Both. Yes.

          • Pudly76

            Many are using twenty as a number, why? IDK. But nobody will name transfers until they announce themselves..and rightly so. Be patient just about 2 wks left.

        • Pudly76

          Btw, blue shirts don’t help this year as we’re up against the 85…they work when we’re under 85 but over our yearly quota, does that make sense?

        • Trojan96

          4 transfers and 2 blue chips would be my guess.

        • Trojan96

          Don’t forget the TE from Penn has transferred as well.

          • hoohoolianFUCLA

            Cary Angeline transfered to NC State. Been off the roster for a long time.

  • GABBY702

    Heard from the AD at Bishop Gorman, Palaie Gaoteote was taking an official visit to USC this weekend, also

    • Pudly76

      That’s right, had to cancel last weekend so he came this week, what a bunch these guys make!!!

  • Pudly76

    MSU, having had multiple sexual misconduct trials and hearings back before 2010 …then in 2010 Mark Emmert was specifically notified of these problems…was probably too busy with his USC problems to pay any attention to real institutional control issues.

  • Pudly76

    Don Gasser found guilty of manslaughter in shooting death of Joe McKnight..

  • hoohoolianFUCLA

    USC offers a walk-on spot to Texas kicker Alex Stadthaus.

    We’re short a couple of recruiters (1 that won’t and 1 who hasn’t been hired — plus 2 rookie coaches), but 2 scholarship kickers are not enough (not to mention Budrovick can kick), we need to spend time getting another kicker.

    It’s incredible to see where Helton chooses to be aggressive.
