USC Saturday Buzz: Recruits Get "Official" Scholarship Offers

Scott Wolf

Recruits all over the country today are tweeting out their "official" offers from colleges.

Players already committed to USC, like tailback Brandon Campbell, showed his offer.

So what did it mean the past year when scores of prep prospects said they were blessed to be offered by USC (or someone else)? Did those count?

Can you only receive a scholarship after an "official" offer?

The recruiting games never end.

  • USC athletic director Mike Bohn sent out a statement to season-ticket holders last night that said, "it is likely that, based on current trends, we will take advantage of this strategic scheduling flexibility and our shared circumstances with UCLA to shift that rivalry contest to an open date later in the season, meaning our first football game would be October 3."

That means USC would open the season against Cal on Oct. 3. I'm curious why people think it will be any safer on Oct. 3 than Sept. 26?

  • Former USC wide receiver Marqise Lee plans to opt out of the 2020 NFL season. Lee is with the New England Patriots.

I think the proposed October start up date is a good sign. It suggests Bohn is factoring in the amount of time USC needs to practice before playing an actual Pac 12 game.

How many kids (17-22) have died from Covid-19 since April? In Cali? It couldn’t be any safer for them...

The real question, Pudly, is how many players coming down with covid during the season will it take to scuttle the rest of the schedule?

How many kids who died had pre-existing conditions?

Are you glad they postponed the ruin game? That would have been lame playing it as the opener.

gt --- I'm glad they postponed the annual takedown of UCLA ---but I sure hope Folt and Bohn have the resolve necessary to stare down the folks who wanna cancel the remaining schedule the first time a player tests positive during the season. The very clear message contained in those graphs you published is there's an almost ZERO chance of anyone in the relevant age group suffering serious complications as a result of covid....
