Report: Casey Tucker De-Commits from USC

Recruiting is back in the news again for Lane Kiffin’s Trojans, as it appears as though USC has lost their first member of their 2014 commitment class, in the form of offensive lineman Casey Tucker. According to Scott Schrader of Fight On 247, Tucker’s recruitment is open, as told by his high school coach.

“Casey is no longer committed to USC and USC has known about Casey’s status, because Tommie Robinson (USC RBs coach) has a son that goes to our school,” said Hamilton head coach Steve Belles. USC knows they need to recruit Casey as if he’s not committed.”

Tucker was USC’s third commitment in the 2014 class, having committed over nine months ago, on July 18. With Tucker, the Trojans had three offensive linemen in the class, along with Jordan Poland of La Jolla, and Toa Lobendahn of St. John Bosco.

Tucker, a 6-foot-6, 270 pound offensive tackle from Chandler, AZ, is the ninth rated offensive tackle according to Rivals, and is ranked as the 67th overall recruit in the FanSided 150.

Other offers in the mix for Tucker include six other Pac-12 schools, including his home-state schools Arizona and Arizona State, in addition to USC rivals Stanford and UCLA.

    What else could you expect with Kiffon as coach. I’m surprised anyone would want to play for him.

      George, if you think Kiffin is such a bad coach, how did he put together a 10-2 season two-years ago. If you think he was lucky, you would be wrong. If he was lucky he would have been 11-1 (remember the Stanford game?). So, he had a bad year last year. Even great coaches have bad years. Don’t forget, the team is under severe scholarship reductions. He’s done a pretty good job recruiting in spite of that. His dad’s defensive scheme was the weak link last year. They could have easily been 10-2 again with a decent defensive performance in three of their losses.
