USC's Clay Helton: 'We had a very good day that we’re very happy about' .
USC is currently 78th in recruiting rankings, worst in Pac-12 and behind the likes of Tulane and Toledo.By just about any metric, the Trojans had their most miserable signing day in the 20-plus-year history of recruiting services. “A terrible, horrible, no good, very bad signing day,” as we put it Wednesday evening. How terrible? Dead-last in the Pac-12. How horrible? Zero five-stars signed up. How no good? Just one four-star added. How very bad? Just the fifth class, and second straight under Helton, that will finish outside of the Top Ten in two decades.
