Another Chimezie Metu Update

Here’s what a Pac-12 spokesperson told me tonight about Chimezie Metu’s attempted trip of an Oregon player: “It was reviewed and has been addressed with USC.”

So it sounds like he will not be punished by the conference.

Chimezie Metu Update

The Pac-12 said it will review Chimezie Metu’s attempted trip of Oregon’s Chris Boucher as part of its weekly protocol. Whether that means there would be any type of penalty remains to be seen.

USC Commit Matt Corral Leaves Oaks Christian High School

Matt Corral, a five-star QB for the Class of 2018 and USC commit, is no longer enrolled at Oaks Christian High School. His departure is allegedly related to a disciplinary matter, according to this story.

In a since-deleted tweet, Corral said: “I did not get expelled nor did I punch anyone. I ran into problems at a school that is biased towards money.”

Oaks Christian, where Joe Montana, Wayne Gretzky and Will Smith had sons playing at one time, biased toward money? Who would ever guess that?

Corral did not say where he would transfer. It would make sense to go to nearby Westlake, where Corral’s Oaks Christian offensive coordinator, Tim Kirksey, was hired in December. Corral would likely need to attend another school for the rest of this year, so he does not violate a CIF rule about following a coach to a new school. He could also transfer to Chaminade, which lost QB Brevin White to Paraclete.
