Monday Whispers: Inside Thoughts On Recruiting Weekend
A USC coach told me this morning the most impressive-looking recruit to visit this weekend was running back Tyrion Davis of Baton Rouge, La.
Davis is committed to LSU so it just may be he wanted a free trip to Los Angeles. But he looked better to USC coaches than a lot of the other recruits who visited and are already committed.
Where was Clancy Pendergast? The same coach told me Pendergast was not at USC this weekend. Could he be interviewing for another job? Seems unlikely as far as NFL jobs are concerned since the season is still underway. Maybe he just had another reason to miss, besides the fact he does not enjoy recruiting.
Should it concern USC that two recruits who visited are coming off serious knee injuries?
Offensive lineman Ron Carr, who is committed to Duke, did not visit as scheduled.
There was chatter inside the McKay Center that three NFL teams are interested in offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury.
