Thursday Whispers: Anybody Home Out There?
Again, today, I heard someone say, “Lynn Swann was on vacation for a week and we haven’t seen him for three weeks.”
Did anyone check the golf simulator?
Here is what Rivals recruiting analyst Mike Farrell said today: “Is it me or is USC really reaching on some kids this cycle? When is the last time you’ve seen this many three-stars in its class? I think a lot changes if and when Clay Helton gets fired and whoever is left to clean up the mess will have some work to do. This isn’t disparaging three-stars at all by the way, but USC has always been a four- and five-star recruiting program and I can’t see why that has changed.”
Maybe Farrell realized USC has not had a universally recognized four-star commitment in more than a year. Or that 80 percent of #USC’s 2020 class is ranked three-stars or below according to 247sports.
