No wonder Kenny and Petey are sounding sooooooo desperate.
Check out this comment from DeVon Flournoy, a Southern Cal commit who will take his official recruiting trip to UCLA on Jan. 9 (emphasis added throughout):
``I realized you can't go to school for what it has but rather how it can help you,'' Flournoy said of the recruiting process. ``Being a football player, you want to touch the ball as much as you can but get a degree that means something, too.''
Again here is what CRN said yesterday:
“That being said, I was sorry to read the comments Kenny made in the Los Angeles Times. I have not told any recruits that if DeWayne left, Kenny would be the defensive coordinator at UCLA and neither have my assistant coaches. Despite the fact that Kenny is a great Bruin, we have more than enough positives at UCLA to interest recruits and convince them that this is the school at which they can flourish both academically and athletically.
This just keeps getting better and better.
I don't see us getting DeVon Flournoy but the fact that a Trojan commit is out there essentially confirming CRN's message is freaking priceless.
I strongly suspect the next move from the Trojie camp is going to be some hard core Trojie recruits going on record (or in background) to T.J. Simers in attempt to support Kenny. It will happen. It won't prove anything of course. The beauty of it of course is it will keep UCLA and Southern Cal in equal footing right during the heat of recruiting battle, taking focus of their BCS bowl game.
