I see JC has an update on the USC side of things concerning E.V. Any chance Sapp or Murphy you can see whats happening on that end?

If Vanderdoes is waiting to see how all the cards fall before faxing his LOI, then it seems that would mean he's very serious about either UCLA or USC. I say that because those are the two classes that still have lots of mystery around them. ND is pretty locked in. I imagine EV knows that Fitts and Hollins aren't going to ND. So he knows who he'd be playing with at ND ... and that's an impressive class to join.
Same with Alabama. While not quite as locked down, they are going to land a great class nevertheless. So regardless of who faxes an LOI to Alabama on the sixth, EV knows it's a class he can be proud of as well.
UCLA is shaping up to be their best class perhaps ever. But lots of things have to close out for that to happen. That's truly a wait and see class.
USC's class is swirling in conflicting messages. Decommitments all over the place, but the USC insiders think Kiffin and Orgeron (and even Haden) have brought stability to that turmoil.
So if (again, big if) EV is waiting to see who signs where before making his pick, it makes me think he wants to go to UCLA but wants to see if the class actually fills in as looks to be happening.

How do college program sell their souls? In case of Vanderdoes,this week alone, USC, Bama, Wash & UCLA had coaches watching sister play hoops...
Noticeably absent from that group? ND baby!
