There is a post on GCC that says USC has slipped down the list for Williams. In large part because of Everette Sands.

yep....yesterday he released a top 5 in order Notre Dame, Georgia, Wisconsin, Clemson and Carolina. Based on his comments, looks like it's ND.

After missing on Scott last year and now this.....I don't think he was responsible for bringing in David Williams, Wilds or Davis.

What is the deal with sands? Not sure if williams and sands personalities have meshed. It is his job to make sure it does. Either he doesnt enjoy recruiting or he doesnt kiss ass.

It's concerning since last month we had a substantial lead, then dropped to 5. Sands has deep ties to the state, and this could develop into a major issue.

Actually, if we're just going by the thread started on GCC (by a member we can't identify, as opposed to Chris Clark), his "source" described Sands as "cocky when he visits and acts like he's Nick Saban." The source is later identified as a coach from Crestwood. None of this is purported to be from Williams himself. Some other posters over there claim his coach is a Clemson alum, but I can't say whether that is true or just paranoid speculation. After the Poona story, anything is possible. But, Chris Clark chimes in to say that his source has us tied for first with ND and Wisconsin. I don't know what is true, but the portrayal of that GCC thread has been rather incomplete over here, so I wanted to fill in some blanks.

I don't consider this to be sensitive GCC subscriber content, since it came from a regular member, but feel free to delete this if the mods disagree.

TW told 247Sports today that his top 4 in order were Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Carolina and Clemson.

I don't personally know the poster you referred to in your post.....but apparently most of the people over there seem to consider him very reliable. It does seem odd that 2 weeks ago we led according to the insiders, and we're now #3 or #4.

Everette Sands. No personality. Has a cockiness that rubs recruits, high school coaches and parents the wrong way. I don't mind coaches being straightforward with a recruit, but let's not be so blunt and dismissive.

It's okay to tell RB recruits you have a priority back (Derrell Scott), but at least do it with diplomacy. Had to be a reason Elijah Hood scratched USC off the list a couple hours after working out at the showcase. I think it was more than SOS not being here when Nick Chubb visited twice for him to have a bad taste concerning USC. I don't think recruits will come right out and say they don't like a particular coach, but I never heard any RBs say anything complimentary about him, either.

And what was the reason Derrell Scott decided not to come to USC? I think we all know the answer.

If you ask many people on here we didn't need Derrell Scott and he wasn't that big of a loss. Wonder what those people think now...?

And I agree. At best, I think DS would of been a utility back.

But, the emphasis we placed on him was paramount. He was our #1 back on the board, coaching staff made it clear he was priority one. Sands made this crystal clear to all backs that visited USC. I honestly think we could of landed a major back from the 2014 class.

Regardless how we felt about DS, Sands failed to land his #1 back.

So sands is a brutal honesty guy. I think the guy is a good coach but he apparently thinks he can coach up anyone. Williams/scarlett/whoever.

Which is a problem. Whether DS was a true RB or just a utility back, he would have helped with depth in 2015. As it turns out, we miss out on him after having a HUGE lead and now Williams (among other RBs this class) appears to be questionable at best. What's worse is Williams is an in-state guy, and a month ago we had a rather sizeable lead.

I just don't understand how this continues to happen. If we miss out on Williams and our other top RB targets this cycle, I can't wait to hear what the apologists have to say about that.
