Quick Recruing Update

As I said earlier this week Pete Carroll keeps feeding the machine, his latest commit is Wes Horton (6-5.5, 236) from Notre Dame High in Sherman Oaks.

From We are SC:

I just like their philosophy on things. I went to their Junior-Day (Feb. 24) and just hearing Coach Carroll and talking to my d-line coach, motivated me to commit. I just loved it a lot up there. I just want to be a part of something special, be a part of one of the best teams in the nation and I want to be a part of the winning tradition--plus I'm staying close to home."

Horton not only wants to be a part of the winning tradition at USC, the lack of depth at the defensive end position after the 2007 season, will provide him an opportunity to compete for early playing time.

"They're losing five defensive ends, so I thought it would be a good opportunity for to get in there and play as soon as possible. But I know it's going to be competitive up there.

With all the DE's that SC is losing at the end of next season he ability to start is greatly increased.

But to me here is the kicker, Horton's dad played for UCLA during the Vermeil era but heading to Westwood was not even an option.

Although Horton's father, Myke, played football for Dick Vermeil at UCLA, he realized he wouldn't be a Bruin legacy after attending UCLA's Junior-Day.

"When I was at the junior-day, there was really nothing that opened my eyes," Horton said. "I had been to UCLA quite a few times and I really didn't see anything new, and nothing that motivated me to go their school."

Really...No S***!

Utterly freakin' amazing!

No surprise there as our friends from across town continue to wallow in the mediocrity of the current regime. Pete Carroll continues to build a great program for the future. With five commits for the 2008 season he is off to a fast start in the recruiting wars for 2008.

Fight On Pete!
