USC Morning Buzz: Recruit Tracker? No It’s The New, Improved Decommit Tracker

247.DECOMMIT

This is the state of recruiting, when 247Sports runs a decommit tracker. These are just the decommits since Thursday and USC is not immune because safety Bubba Bolden is among those who changed their mind. Even Alabama and Oklahoma are affected. It always bears repeating that coaches can drop recruits at any time during the recruiting process.

But this merry-go-round becomes tiresome when players commit to three-or-four schools. As for USC recruiting? It currently ranks 34th in the Rivals’ rankings. Another big finish, however, and USC is right where it always is. Maybe it’s taking time to get excited about Clancy Pendergast with two defensive commitments out of nine overall.

Pac-12 Meets With Houston University

The Pac-12 confirmed today that it held an “introductory meeting” with the University of Houston last month in San Francisco. I can’t see how the conference really holds any interest in Houston. Cast aside the athletic interests. Does Houston meet the academic profile the Pac-12 presidents prefer for members? And for athletics, how would it look to not get Oklahoma and Texas but to land Houston?

Kobe Paras To Creighton

Basketball player Kobe Paras, who signed with UCLA and attended summer school there until the university said he not meet their academic requirements, will attend Creighton. After talking to several coaches at non-Pac-12 schools, they were all convinced UCLA simply did not want him anymore since they knew his test scores and grades all along.

USC Quote Of The Day

KIFFIN.ASU“To see that chess match (between Lane Kiffin and Clancy Pengergast), see it played out, I wish sometimes I could just have a box of popcorn to watch it.”

— USC coach Clay Helton

That will be the first game matchup when USC plays Alabama. A box of popcorn was even more appropriate to watch the five games Kiffin and Pendergast coached together in 2013. Remember their final game together, against Arizona State, the Sun Devils scored 62 points.

Morning Buzz: Cowboys Stadium Grandeur Changes USC Plans

USC coach Clay Helton was so overwhelmed by AT&T Stadium during a visit four weeks ago that he decided the Trojans will practice at the facility the day before the game to erase any feelings of awe from being in the stadium on game day.

“I hope it gets rid of the oohs and ahs,” Helton said.

This goes against the USC routine established during the Pete Carroll era of holding a practice elsewhere and visiting the opposing stadium the day before just to walk around and get a feel for things.

This is also means Alabama has an advantage because the Crimson Tide played two games there last season.

“They do have a comfort level there,” Helton said.

Two Ways Looking At USC

USC brings back its entire offensive line, its receiving and tailback corps and three secondary starters among others. So the Trojans should be better than last season, right? The converse argument is the average players don’t really get better even with experience.
