Something is happening with the University of Southern California and their football team. In the last two weeks, they have had five recruits that were poised to make an impact in Los Angeles decommit from the program . The latest player to decommit is defensive end Kyle Fitts from Redlands East Valley High School. Fitts, 6-foot-4, 245 pounds, is highly coveted and is being highly recruited by the University of Washington and UCLA. Fitts cites a break in trust between himself and the University of Southern California.
This decommitment, coupled with the departures of safety Max Redfield (recently committed to Notre Dame), wide receiver Eldridge Massington, defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes, and wide receiver Sebastian LaRue, have started the ball rolling on possible conspiracy theories. One or two decommittments is fine around this period in the signing season but when five players decomitt back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back then one can conclude that is something has to be going on in the football complex of the University of Southern California.
USC has gone from having the number one quarterback and team in the preseason to losing six games and becoming the most overrated college football team in recent history. With the results of this past season and with the recent migration of 2013 commitments, it does not bode well for the future of the USC program.
Only time will tell what is going on inside coach Lane Kiffin’s football program. There has to be an explanation for the recent events that have decimated their 2013 football recruiting class.
