In May Chris Steele announced he would be leaving Florida for Oregon. Now 247Sports. citing two unnamed sources, is reporting that Steele will be enrolling instead at USC. The website wrote that “Steele officially visited Oregon but then was back on campus at USC Monday with Texas wide receiver transfer Bru McCoy.
Thus far, neither the player nor the program has confirmed the development.
If it were to come to fruition, though, it would be yet another big get for the embattled Helton & Company.
Steele was rated as the No. 5 cornerback in the country; the No. 6 player at any position in the state of California; and the No. 42 player overall. He was the highest-rated signee in the Gators’ class this year.
