Kenny Bigelow was the first to commit to the Trojans for 2013, just a day after the Trojans took UCLA behind the woodshed. But perhaps he pulled the trigger a little early, as the 5-Star defensive lineman ruffled a few feathers on Thursday by admitting that both Alabama and Auburn are looking pretttttty, pretttttty, prettttttty, pretttttttttty good.
#IHaveToConfess if I wasn’t committed right now my top 5 would be Auburn Bama USC Oregon Ohio State in the order

Now, let’s ignore for a minute that his tweet has two immediate
replies NCAA violations on Twitter from Auburn fans salivating over the prospects of Bigelow headed to The Plains. Bigelow is clearly ‘confessing’ that he committed too early.
Is this tweet a giant morsel of much ado about nothing? Perhaps. But, like we’ve mentioned before with wavering commits, USC doesn’t exactly have a perfect history of holding onto top recruits who commit early.
Bigelow, as you would expect, received a ton of flack over his tweet. So much so that his feed read like a married man apologizing for forgetting to take out the garbage on Sunday night.
And speaking of being married, perhaps that’s what Bigelow is ultimately referring to, as his tweet explaining the initial tweet read much like someone who planned on sticking to his commitment, regardless of his feelings.
Yeah I said if IWASN’T committed but guess what I AM sooooo that means DONT hold you breath because I WILL be a TROJAN #FightOn

To give Bigelow the benefit of the doubt, he was perfectly honest in both tweets. Was probably not what USC fans wanted to hear? Of course. But in the end, he’s yet to decommit, and with Class of 2015 quarterback David Sills on his team, he won’t exactly be far from the hums of ‘Fight On’.
So until Bigelow signs or finds the state of Alabama more appealing than La La Land, you’ll have to just assume he’ll stay committed to the Trojans.
Oh, and let’s stop ignoring those
tweets to recruits NCAA Violations. Remember children, stay in school and don’t tweet recruits.
