USC actually took a back seat tonight with UCLA landing Demetric Fletcher of Great Oak and linebacker Lokeni Toailoa of Fontana Carter. Toailoa’s dad wore a UCLA shirt and USC hat before the announcement, so it looks like the coaching staff is not as invincible as you might have thought Signing Day. Of course none of today’s recruits went to Serra or Poly, which made it tougher.
Oklahoma tight end Taylor McNamara announced via twitter he would transfer to USC, where USC obviously has a glaring need. McNamara will be immediately eligible. He only played in 11 games with the Sooners and caught one pass.
Former UCLA coach Ben Howland has reached an agreement to become coach at Mississippi State, according to various reports. Howland’s personality should fit in well at Starkville. Who else was the basketball coach at Mississippi State? Former USC coach Bob Boyd.
