USA Today reports George Farmer was paid like a seventh-round draft pick despite not being drafted. Farmer received a $15,000 signing bonus and $40,000 guaranteed base salary.
You want an example of how good a job Rich Rodriguez did at Arizona last year? Not a single Wildcat player got drafted last weekend. Zero. And Rodriguez won the Pac-12 South. A division that featured a USC team with six players drafted along with Arizona State (four), Utah (four) and UCLA (three).
Or look at this way: The other Pac-12 teams with no draft picks were 2-10 Colorado and 5-7 California. So yes, coaching does matter and can be more important than recruiting rankings.
After many discussions with my family and mentors I’ve decided to decommit from USC & open up my recruitment again.

The Glendora QB committed today. So what does that mean exactly? Tate Martell of Bishop Gorman appears close to commiting too. Does that mean USC will take two QBs? That’s a lot of quarterbacks even with Cody Kessler graduating. Six if Martell commits to be exact. Note: Martell would be a Class of 2017 commit but USC would still have six QBs that year.
James Harden finished second in the NBA MVP voting today. Stephen Curry won the award. Harden wanted to go to USC and USC liked him. But the Trojans dropped Harden when they realized O.J. Mayo wanted to come to USC.
It turned out to be a foolish decision because Harden stayed in college for two years while Mayo played only one. Not to mention USC basketball went on probation because of Mayo.
