Monday Whispers: The Quarterback Drama Intensifies
Insiders at the McKay Center are fascinated by the future of the quarterback position following Kedon Slovis’ big performane against Stanford.
They wonder if Clay Helton stays at USC, how he will handle the JT Daniels vs. Slovis competition?
“Slovis looks like the guy but everyone knows Clay is loyal to JT and his father,” one football program employee said.
They also wonder how Bryce Young will be affected by all this?
I reported last week Young was expected to decommit and go to Alabama. Will the emergence of Slovis hasten that decision?
A Mater Dei coach told me he expected Young to decommit in the next 10 days but said some Monarch coaches were trying to talk Young out of decommitting from USC.
There is a lot going on at quarterback and it remains to be seen if Helton can handle it?
Meanwhile, I hear Lynn Swann was projecting a happy persona in the luxury suites Saturday night during the Stanford game.
“He was pretty stoic against Fresno State,” a donor said. “He looke different Saturday.”
Of course he did.
