Lane Kiffin just can’t stop bringing negative attention to the USC program. In the six months alone, Kiffin has lied about his coaches poll vote, prohibited visiting teams from doing walkthroughs at the Coliseum, pulled a walk-ons scholarship to give it to a player fresh out jail, briefly banned a reporter for doing his job, and had to fire a student manager who deflated balls in the Oregon game. And it must be repeated that all of that happened in a span of SIX months.
But with the recruiting season in full swing, Kiffin isn’t done. His most recent misstep involves a four star defensive end decommiting from USC because he was told he could not early enroll. That’s despite being told just two weeks ago that he could early enroll.
Redlands East Valley High defensive lineman Kylie Fitts is de-committing from USC after learning he wouldn’t be able to enter school early, Wildcats coach Kurt Bruich said.
USC told Fitts, a 6-foot-4, 265-pounder who graduated at the semester, on Monday they no longer had a spot for him to enroll early and wanted him to wait until June to enter school, Bruich said.
Fitts played in the U.S. Army All-America Bowl on Saturday and said he was told by USC assistants they would see him on Thursday, Jan. 10 when he was supposed to start at USC.
“Then two days later, they tell him not to come,” Bruich said. “He’s going to de-commit and explore other options.”
Lane Kiffin just can’t help himself.
