    No....but it would be a LIST, not a commitment, anyway

    No, but he sure looks to be all about Oregon.

    yep, what a crap shoot. Is it going to be another year, we're we don't get highly rated OT's? that we need this class.

    Let’s not jump the gun, we already have Jason Rodriguez and still very much in the running for Rhyan and Vimahi, as well as an outside chance at Keegan. If we lose Rhyan I’ll panic, but frankly if we get 2 among Rhyan, Vimahi, and Keegan then I’m thinking we made out big. We should also add a 3-star in the mix too (thinking we will get either Fautanu or Laumea).

    That, I agree with. Still wondering what happened between earlier in the year when he looked like all SC, to now where it looked like we were running a distant 3rd...

    Why is anyone suprised. Calloway is a dinosaur. Can't connect with the young players. Our O-line has been a liability, has shown little improvement, and we get punked by ND and OSU. He is definitely our weakest link.

    Too bad we cannot get input from him as to why he chose Oregon over the good guys, like the recruit that picked MSU.
    Fight On!

    Per TOS - USC cooled on him and likes Rhyan, Enokk, and Keegan better (and of course Jason who is already committed).
    They also think Bernard Schirmer is better, so was not as keen on taking him. However, if/when we drop Gino (3 star DT who is 6'2" and 260 lbs), we might have room for Jonah for the fifth spot.

    Real
    What a strange cooling....but if we can land Keegan. That would make up for it.

    Going up against Stanford for an OT is never a slam dunk. UCLA is in the mix too. Rhyan is playing his cards very close to his vest. There certainly appears to be a Calloway factor in USC's OL recruiting over the last 8 months. After losing Carman, Sewell, Dobbs, and Jonah, it's hard to be overly optimistic right now.

    I’m bummed out, it sucks. But Helton knows what needs to happen. There are some things I can’t say publicly, but I want to reassure people that Helton has a gift when it comes to connecting with the right kinda kids. USC fans shouldn’t be too quick to start worrying.....after the final signing day, it’s gonna work out

    I'll leave this here.

    False, totally (not directed to you, just to TOS). We absolutely didn't cool on him.

    1. It’s August
    2. Can’t take everyone
    3. What has this staff done in recruiting that would lead anyone to not trust they will finish in top 5?

    Yahtzee!
    This has begun to become a reoccurring hunch that a have.
    Not to say there is anything wrong with Jonah, more to say that HCCH is trying to build a “USC-type of player” the same way New England has in the NFL, San Antonio has in the NBA, etc.
