Well it was certainly surprising news on a Saturday morning in June to hear that the USC quarterback commit had de-committed, and i’m sorry to see it because I think Corral is a good one.
But it’s not entirely out of the blue. We had first heard a rumbling back in March that SC wasn’t 100% set with Matt, and the only thing we were told is that SC was doing some checking after the incident that led to his departure from Oaks. We didn’t hear anything more on it until the rumbling popped up twice in recent weeks. One of the times came when I was talking with Steve Clarkson about Matt’s performance after his camp in San Diego, Clarkson said “It would be the biggest mistake for SC not to take him”.
It’s not clear yet exactly what caused this to happen but for the report to come out that Matt would no longer be considering USC is an indication that the situation came to a head between the two parties.
So where do the Trojans go from here? According to Greg Biggins there has been contact with Jack Tuttle:

In light of the de-commitment of LB Poly QB Matt Corral, #USC has reached out to Mission Hills Jack Tuttle but the #Utah commit sounds firm
Stay tuned for more on this development.
