USC Loses Major Star After Not Firing Clay Helton
USC loses a major star after not firing Clay Helton.
In the aftermath of Mike Bohn’s decision to retain Helton as the program’s head football coach, the fallout has been swift and loud.
On top of just the general criticism from fans and alumni regarding the decision, USC is now also losing talent as a result of it.
On Friday, four-star offensive lineman Joey Wright announced that he was decommitting from USC.
The No. 5 recruit from Nevada originally picked the Trojans over Arizona State, Nevada and Washington State. But it appears that the direction USC is now heading in does not align with where he wants to go.

“As of now USC is something in the past,” Wright posted on Twitter.
“I appreciate everyone that took part in getting me there. With that being said my recruitment is now open!”
With Wright opting to go in a different direction, the already lackluster USC 2020 recruiting class is now going to get a little worse.
