Monday Whispers: Where Is USC Today?
Did you notice Amon-Ra St. Brown had 3 passes thrown to him in the first 5 plays vs. Utah?
Was this a coincidence after I wrote Friday that I heard Brown’s family was upset with Clay Helton following the BYU game, when St. Brown caught only one pass?
It all fits because Helton always cowers to his star players.
On Sept 2, I wrote on this website that a Mater Dei source told me Bryce Young was going to decommit from USC and commit to Alabama. Well, it happened Sunday.
Here is another part of the story: The same source told me Young’s father is expected to move to Tuscaloosa. This is what happened when Tua Tagovailoa committed to Alabama.
Young’s decommitment hurts because it encourages other top recruits to no longer consider USC.
Look how poorly USC is faring with the top 10 California prospects per 247 sports:
1. ILB Justin Flowe: Clemson leads
2. QB DJ Uiagalelei: Clemson commit
3. TB Kendall Milton: Georgia commit
4. QB Bryce Young: Alabama commit
5. WR Jermaine Burton: LSU commit
6. CB Clark Phillips III: Ohio State commit
7. AP Daniyel Ngata: Texas A&M leads
8. WR Jalen McMillan: Washington commit
9. WR Johnny Wilson: Oreogn commit
10. WR Gary Bryant Jr.: USC leads
This list does not include the nation’s top cornerback, Elias Ricks, who went to Mater Dei but moved to Florida and is currently committed to LSU. His mother went to USC.
This is why even after a win over Utah, USC needs to make a change and fire Helton.
