Does anybody have a blow by blow timeline of their ineptitude for this past recruiting cycle?
Alex Collins' mom ups the ante. Just hired a law firm to keep her son in Florida.
Anyone else hear that there are 5-6 schools turning in Ole Miss to the NCAA. 3 of the 5 are $EC schools.
lol what in the actual
She keeps this up much longer and he might lose all his spots.
The caveat with every negative to the USC class failure is the top-end success. USC signed more five-star players than any other program, landing five elite-level players. The problem is that it also saw a bevy of them de-commit. The Trojans lost five-star players Max Redfield, Jalen Ramsey and Eddie Vanderdoes, as well as four-star prospects Kylie Fitts, Torrodney Prevot and Jason Hatcher. They could not backfill with five-star Matthew Thomas and then failed in the attempt to land four-star defensive backs Priest Willis and Tahaan Goodman from UCLA as a package. After what looked like a class that many would call one of the best of all-time, it trickled down to a 12-man crew that wound up outside the top 10 nationally and limped to the finish with just four-star Quinton Powell coming aboard. Depth was an issue for USC this past season and, with a limited class like this, it could be again.
She's got nothing. Pops signed the LOI.
That's one crazy biatch
Working on it....
What confuses me most about the USC situation is how they didn't have backup options waiting in the wings when these guys decommitted. Like when Dawson decommitted, we had a number of solid OL guys to come in and potentially take his spot; when Conley decommitted and we missed on McQuay, we had Dawson and Hill ready to step up. Surely there are a fair number of SoCal 3* and low 4* who'd jump on a January or even NSD offer, no? Taking only 12 players seems like a disaster, even if they are all very good.

Already regretting? lol
USC just fired Ty Isaac's primary recruiter, offensive coordinator/RB coach Kennedy Polamalu.
@ that kid trusting his future to Lane Kiffin. Have fun in LA.
USC has to get rid of Lane Kiffin asap. The longer he stays, the more damage he causes. He's their RR.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
No hate towards the kid. I think he made a poor choice and to be honest I'd be shocked if he's still 100% happy with his decision, but he's still going to play football at USC. Good for him. Plus, there's no way we'd have Derrick Green if Isaac committed, and I'm pretty sure 9/10 Michigan fans would prefer Green over Isaac as a pure RB in our future offense. However I would've absolutely loved to have Isaac on board as a ATH/WR.
I hope he stays forever.
Ty Isaac @TyIsaac
And the kid didn't even sign until the next day because his parents thought he was making a poor choice.
He tweeted "Disappointed" earlier FWIW. Bad move on his part, bet McQuay will be thinking the same thing soon too.
How a parent could even allow their child to form a relationship with Kiffen is beyond me... Too bad for them... On a side note, I went back to Sparty's DD message board and read the threads of our commits... Completely hilarious... Kugler and Bosch and Hurst were the best
I forgot about McQuay. He's the one I wish we got.
Kiffin is nothing but a scumbag. Wished someone dropped kicked his arse.
Sucks for him.
McCray is taking/took his ACT today, kind of weird.
