Chris Steele explains why he’ll enroll at USC next week

June 5, 2019


Former Florida Gator CB Chris Steele‍ informed Monday morning that he’ contacted the Oregon coaching staff and made it known he intends to enroll Tuesday at USC.

Here is a statement from Steele explaining his decision to sign with and enroll at USC next week.

At one time both Steele and Bru McCoy‍ were locks to end up at USC and enroll in January. But the Trojans suffered one of their worst seasons in 20 plus years, Clay Helton was found himself fighting for his job, USC had one of its lowest ranked recruiting classes in decades and several players decided to jump ship and transfer.

Both chose to attend other schools in part due to the program appearing on the decline, the uncertainty surrounding Helton’s future and other items of lesser impact. But here we are on June 5, 2019, and both Steele and McCoy are both back home in Southern California with plans to enroll at USC this month.

For those who’ve lived in Los Angeles long enough, we’ve witnessed some of the most memorable sports moments in history. Not for one moment are we suggesting that Steele and McCoy transferring to USC is remotely on the same scale as Kirk Gibson booming the 1988 World-Series game winner off Dennis Eckerskey, but when it comes to college football recruiting, Steele and McCoy ending up at USC is somewhat mind blowing.

And first thing that entered my mind was Vin Scully’s call of the walk-off home run by Gibson when Steele phoned to give definitive word of his plans to sign and enroll at USC.

"In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened.” - Vin Scully

USC Director of Player Development Gavin Morris recruited Steele for several years and was instrumental in convincing him to ultimately end up a Trojan.
