It wouldn't surprise me if Darr disappeared from the team between now and September. I never realized he was another gift from Kiffin but indirectly he was. Check the link to see how funny team recruiting rankings can be.

National Signing Day: Punter Matt Darr Decommits from USC, Off to Fresno State | Bleacher Report

Matt Darr's decommit yesterday dropped the Trojans from No. 14 to No. 21 on Scout.com's team rankings. Hell hath no fury like an ignored kicker during Signing Week.

It's great that he is a good guy and all but that is not a good reason to give someone a scholarship. I'm hoping this means he has really improved from what we saw out of him last year. Not trying to knock your former player at all..just saying he did not appear worthy of a scholarship last year. Again, this may be a sign that he has really improved since then, and I really hope that is the case bc we really need a dependable kicker.

Anyone know how long he has been playing football? If he hasn't been playing long than I think it's a good sign that he has improved by simply having more time to learn the craft.

I played football with him in middle school and he played QB/K/P.....then he went to Alcoa high school and I'm pretty sure he was strictly a kicker....I think he didn't play as a freshman in HS though

Why would you think that? Unless you're completely ignorant, stupid, syphilis infected moron you would notice that they don't have the same last name.

Dang, well there goes my theory/hope that he hadn't been playing very long. I don't know why but for some reason I thought I read on here that he didn't play in high school or had only played his senior year or something along those lines. Well here's to hoping he was still awarded the scholarship because improved a lot since last year. If not then I don't understand using up a scholarship on a player who has been underwhelming (to say the least) when given his chance to prove himself during games and who would have still played for the team without being awarded one. Just my two cents.

I just wish that out of 4 schollys the coaches can get 1 player to hit 100% of extra points. Heck maybe even 10-12 from 40 yards in

Lemme say this: now that Brodus is on scholarship, he can practice with the team for the Spring game. That will give the staff the ability to figure out who of Darr, Palardy, Brodus, and Bullock they want to keep. Probably only two of those guys are going to have a scholarship in the Fall.
