TuesdayWhispers: Why Can't USC Get Legacy Recruits?
Four-star corner Ayden Hector, the son of former USC cornerback Zuri Hector, committed to Stanford on Monday.
Last year, cornerback Kyu Kelly, the son of former USC star corner Brian Kelly, committed to Stanford.
And I’ve heard Bishop Amat corner Dyson McCutcheon, the son of former USC star Daylon McCutcheon, is not currently putting the Trojans at the top of his list.
Why is this happening?
I always hear the same answer when I ask people: Clay Helton. And to a lesser extent, the secondary coaches.
There is little about Helton that excites the fathers to send their sons to USC.
USC does have a commitment from tight end Jack Yary, the son of USC legend Ron Yary. But I might have some more news on that soon because the Air Raid ignores the tight end and that might cause Yary to reconsider.
