With the shocking information Sunday that Lincoln Riley is leaving Oklahoma to take the USC job, here’s a take a look at 5 prospects he may flip from the Sooners to the Trojans particularly with so many West recruits in Oklahoma’s recruiting courses:
There is likely to be an “it’s solely a matter of time” factor right here as Brown has one of the best relationships with Riley and Dennis Simmons at Oklahoma. The previous USC teaching employees was making an attempt to flip Brown for the reason that day he dedicated to the Sooners and by no means backed off the Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei five-star all-purpose again. There won’t be a decommitment proper this minute however Brown goes to take a really severe take a look at USC after which make his choices from there. Georgia has additionally already reached out and others will as nicely as a result of Brown is that dynamic with the ball in his arms.
The four-star receiver from Los Alamitos, Calif., dedicated to Oklahoma lower than a month after his quarterback and classmate Malachi Nelson picked the Sooners. That’s not a coincidence. The 2 are like kindred spirits on the soccer subject, have a fantastic connection within the offense and taking part in collectively in school is certainly a precedence. Riley goes to pursue Lemon, Nelson and others very onerous to remain residence and play up the highway at USC. It’s one thing that would undoubtedly occur fairly simply.
USC, Oregon, Alabama and Florida State have been the 4 different finalists in Moore’s recruitment when he picked Oklahoma in September. He performed his sophomore season at Las Vegas (Nev.) Desert Pines earlier than going to Los Alamitos to affix forces with Lemon and Nelson in that spectacular offensive assault. There’s loads of motive to imagine staying nearer to residence is smart for Moore particularly if his Los Al teammates really feel like that’s their greatest transfer, too.
That is the massive fish and the one everybody might be coming after throughout the nation once more. This could possibly be a easy transfer that Lincoln Riley discovered his 2023 quarterback and Nelson follows him to USC. Or it could possibly be that Nelson actually enjoys Oklahoma and Norman and a future competing within the SEC and sees who’s employed to switch Riley. Each nationwide energy might be making a run at Nelson as a result of he’s that gifted however the guess proper now’s that he needs to play for Riley proper up the highway.
USC wants depth, energy and toughness alongside the offensive line and the four-star from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman has all these attributes. He dedicated to Oklahoma over Alabama and Notre Dame so it is likely to be a tad tougher for Riley to swing him to the Trojans however actually not out of the query. Particularly with the necessity alongside the offensive line, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of risk that Taylor takes a much-closer take a look at the Trojans once more.
