USC Forward Chimezie Metu Tried To Trip Oregon Player

USC forward Chimezie Metu (on the bench) tried to trip Oregon forward Chris Boucher in the second half last night. The video of the play is below. If that wasn’t enough, Metu received a Flagrant 1 foul for slapping Oregon’s Payton Pritchard in the back.

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.

Steve Sarkisian Still Has Unfinished Business With USC

Steve Sarkisian might be focused on being the Atlanta Falcons’ offensive coordinator, but his arbitration hearing with USC is scheduled for July. Arbitration could help keep some messy details about Sarkisian out of the public eye, which helps the former USC coach. I doubt the Falcons want their fans hearing whatever details USC might have about Sarkisian’s off-field behavior.
