    Would he be considered a soft verbal even though kiffin is encouraging his recruits to take other visits to make sure they really want to go to usc?

    More like Kiffin wants someone else and doesn't want to burn any bridges.

    Have to give some credit to Lane Kiffin here, it is nice to see him not pulling his offer to a recruit for visiting another school after committing to USC. Apparently he is even encouraging the recruit to visit other schools. Needless to say some coaches (think Brady Hoke here) are not that accommodating.

    I think the point you're missing that he has 18 commits currently, and can sign only 15 due to ongoing NCAA sanctions. He needs to find ways to let himself off the hook without coming off as a total asshat to the high school coaches. Letting commits to visit other schools is a result of that. Let's see if he takes the same approach when the NCAA sanctions are past.

    Seems like a great kid. Hopefully the Game in Nov can change his mind.

    According to this article Kiffin is OK with 18 as long as 3 enroll early (i.e. count against the 2012 class):


    See: The Trojans also have commitments from 18 high school seniors......Last February,........its NCAA-mandated cap of signable players set at 15, USC signed 12..........By signing three less than the maximum last spring, the Trojans saved those spots for early enrollees next January along with the 15 available slots in the 2013 class.

    So USC should have a scholarship available for LaRue (i.e. all 18 commits) if he still wants it; but hopefully he'll be sold on Ohio State (after his visit here) and won't want it.

    Well, he signed 15 for 2012. If 3 of them had early enrolled, then what you say might be possible. But I am not buying it just yet. Time will tell. I think it goes against Kiffin's mentality and we will only know when he has finished with NCAA sanctions.
