    DL Keanu Williams (Clovis, CA/Clovis) commits to Oregon over Stanford, UCLA and USC. Another nice win for the Ducks in California and another Fresno-area prospect headed out of State. Oregon putting together another nice class.

    I don’t see that as a big loss. With the guys left to make a decision on where they’ll play football next year, this might be exactly
    how the Trojans planned it.

    Why has USC struggled over the years with kids from the Fresno area?

    I asked a recruit that a few years ago, when Oklahoma was doing so well with kids there and he said that Norman was exactly like Fresno, so they were used to the feel of the town. I think a lot of them just don't like the big city feel of Los Angeles. Obviously that feeling doesn't cover every single Fresno-area prospect, but it's something I've heard from a few of them.

    I wouldn't lose sleep with this news. It would have been nice if Williams had picked USC. I guaranty, USC DL, DE class will be stronger than the Duckies. I believe we'll end up with a DL class of: 4* Jay Toia, 6'2", 310, 4* Josh Simmons 6'6" 285 lbs, 4* Tiavai Savea 6'4" 270 lbs and 4* Ross Maseuli, 6'3" 340 lbs + DE's 5* Korey Foreman, 6-5 270, 3* Colin Mobley 6-3, 265, 4* Aaron Armitage, 6-4, 250. This is a powerful DL, DE Class.

    In the final rankings, USC will have a higher rated 2021 class than Oregon. Dang, I really despise Oregon!

    It's because a lot of NorCal kids are enamored with Oregon and their 500+ uniform combinations so they jump at the chance to go there. I see a bunch of kids wearing Oregon gear up here in the Central Valley. Not so much USC gear except for a few.

    Simple lazy recruiting. They don't recruit that area hard. That's why Oregon is kicking their @$$ in the SJV.

    When was that last time you saw a photo of Helton at Clovis West? Or any of his staff? It's a 4 hr drive. I've been saying they have to lose the baggage like Gavin for years he's lazy too.

    If it wasn't for the new blood showing out it would be more of the same.

    ***Am I wrong? Somebody post a picture of Clay Helton at a Fresno School recruiting and put the year it was taken. Go ahead I'll wait.
