Monday Whispers: A Recruit's Intentions Become Clearer

Monday Whispers: A Recruit's Intentions Become Clearer

I wrote last Thursday that Mater Dei cornerback Elias Ricks’ parents were planning to move to Baton Rouge.

Now Ricks says he is leaving Mater Dei because he wants to graduate early and enroll in college in January.

Ricks said he will play at a not-yet-disclosed school. Will it be in Southern California? Will it be in Louisiana? Will it be in Florida? Stay tuned.

How does this affect USC? Ricks will still visit the Trojans. And LSU is still confident it will land him.

But as Lane Kiffin used to say: verbal commitments are worthless.

  • I asked two USC coaches the best part of spring practices? They both agreed it was Clay Helton not wearing headsets during a couple scrimmages. That’s a real sign of respect!

  • I keep hearing rumors JT Daniels has a PR firm. Really? Can that really help someone win a quarterback competition?

  • Lynn Swann is making a concerted effort to be seen on campus lately. It’s part of a new campaign following his disastrous decison to attend an autograph show and help his image following the hiring of new president Carol Folt.
