"It's what a brother would do for another brother"
For my guess on the negative recruiting I have to believe the it is the jokes in Westworld. EV would be a hugh loss, and I hope the whole month of January is miserably cold in South Bend!
We have a great class coming in. And we need guys who want to be here. Last year Ellis went to UCLA after leaning USC for a long time and we got Leonard Williams at the end who has turned out to be much better and won Defensive Freshman of the year in the Pac 10.
We also got Lee when guys like Kyle Prater were rated much higher. Look at how Lee ended up.
Recruiting is all speculation and these stars are evaluations by people who are not college coaches. In the end we will have an incredibly talented recruiting class. But, the importance of having guys come in who want to be Trojans and who value what the University has to offer cannot be understated. That is why I love Cravens, Browne, Hawkins, Fitts, Davis and Bigelow. Their desire to play for USC has never ever been in doubt. And the same can be said for other incredibly talented recruits like Isaac, Rogers and Mitchell.
Finally guys like Jermaine Kelly who I watched this year are dying to be Trojans. I would be thrilled to sign him. All of our optons are good, but we do not need anyone coming in who does not appreciate what he has.
As for Eddie, I find the whole thing rather strange. Scott is very accurate and reliable. Something happened that we have no idea about. I believe this is especially true because he will not talk to Scott any longer. And UCLA players seem to be the ones in the know.
I have tremendous confidence that in the end we will have an incredible class. One that is tight and one that has no fear of competition. Fight on!

You know what they say about people living in glass houses......
Is anyone aware that Mora's name is floating around for the soon to be vacant SD Chargers job?

This is my pure speculation, but I believe a lot of this stuff with EV is coming from Tevin McDonald, especially the stuff about players having issues with Kiffin
I remember after he visited there were posts about Tevin saying that EV was leaning towards UCLA or flat out had switched
It just fits the timeline and who would have a better source than Tevin?
I dont know if he was disappointed that he never got a USC offer, or but my intuition tells me Tevin has a hand in this
If I am wrong, I will gladly take an ass whoopin from Poppa Tim
Body punches only though, my face is my meal ticket
"coming from Tevin McDonald"
Dope smoking, suspended Tevin McDonald? How credible should he be?
