Recruit decommits from USC after Lane Kiffin defers his scholarship



quote:

Redlands (Calif.) East Valley High School and USC coach Lane Kiffin are at odds thanks to a deferred scholarship. Defensive end Kylie Fitts, a four-star recruit Rivals ranked seventh nationally at his position, was committed to USC and took extra high school classes so he could graduate early and enroll at the university in January. Fitts talked to a couple USC coaches at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 5 and they said they were ready to have him on campus. But the following Monday, he received a call saying his scholarship was no longer available for the spring semester. Fitts was supposed to be on campus on Jan. 10. The Trojans didn't pull his scholarship entirely, but deferred him to the fall. However, since Fitts had already graduated high school, he had nowhere to go and didn't want to wait. “Recruiting man, it’s crazy,” Redlands East Valley coach Kurt Bruich told the Riverside Press-Enterprise. “He’s wanted to go to USC for as long as he can remember and now he feels betrayed. He did everything he was supposed to do from his end and he was a loyal kid. I think they thought because of that loyalty he’d still want to go there. He said to me ‘What am I supposed to do for the next five months?’ It seems shady. I think it seems shady to everyone.” Consequently, Fitts, who was recruited and offered by several major programs around the country, has decommitted from the Trojans and opened up his recruiting. Bruich told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that Notre Dame, Washington and UCLA were all back in the mix. The whole scenario has caused some consternation between Bruich, who runs one of the better programs in the state, and USC. Bruich even took to Twitter on Friday to express his feelings about USC and specifically coach Lane Kiffin.
Recruiting issues like this happen everywhere, but this isn’t exactly the kind of publicity USC needs right now, especially on the heels of an underachieving season, which resulted in a bowl loss to Georgia Tech and a 7-6 record.

Here are the Kifnotes:

7th ranked DE talks to USC coaches on Jan 5th where they say they can't wait for him to get on campus on Jan. 10th. On Jan 7th, he gets a call saying his scholarship is deferred til the fall semester. This is after he took extra classes so he could graduate early and be on campus on January 10th. So he has to decommit or sit at home until the fall semester.

Sucks that he got lied to by the USC staff.. but he should hold some responsibility for trusting that staff in the first place.

He could still go to USC if it has been his dream like he says. He just has to pay for the first semester.

I hope he goes to Notre Dame.

Now that bama owns the 42-14 beat down I want to see them stay competitive and in the mix. Good fans. Great tradition.

Sounds like it's either go somewhere else or wait until June. Not sure he has the money to pay his way, or at least he hasn't expressed that he plans to do so.

He doesn't have to pay for anything. Just take the spring semester off and start school in the summer like most of the other 2013 recruiting class.

Probably depends on the school.

A few of the schools he's interested in are on the quarter system and can still get him in for spring ball. UCLA and Washington are 2 I know for sure.

The kid is going to school for football, not academics, so who cares when he starts?

Thug POS...Lane Kiffen, not the kid
