Chris Steele Decommits From USC, Naturally

Chris Steele Has Sights Set On MVP

St. John Bosco (CA) cornerback Chris Steele is an interesting dude, to say the least.

He’s an awesome player. There’s no denying that. And it’s a good thing because he’s also not at all shy about it.

Steele’s original commitment to USC was equally interesting.

The five-star prospect had his commitment hijacked by Chris Swanson of USC Rivals, then—rumor had it—wanted Trojans head coach Clay Helton to somehow force Swanson out of his job.

And then, even after arguably the weirdest commitment of the summer, Steele said that he was surprised about the decision that he premeditated:

“To be completely honest with you, I did not think I was going to end up at USC,” Steele said. “I definitely did not see this coming."

The commitment seemed flimsy at the time. Not sure how you can “not see” your own commitment coming. And, today, that was affirmed by his decommitment—which, frankly, is the least surprising piece of this so far.

Steele explained on the WOOSAH podcast that he took all of his visits precisely because he did not want to stay close to home. Then committed to the school that was, you know, super close to home.

With his recruitment re-opened, it can be assumed that he will be choosing between previous front-runners Oklahoma, Oregon and Florida.

Best of luck, everyone.
