Too bad, Tate: USC reportedly not interested in Forcier

Whether they’re just in a bad mood, or genuinely not interested, it looks as though USC will not be contacting former Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier for his services.

Forcier, fresh off his notable shunning of Miami, mentioned to ESPN’s Joe Schad on Tuesday that he was interested in transferring to a handful of schools that included Auburn, Kansas State, Montana, San Diego State and USC.

However, it appears, through no decision of  his own, that Forcier can cross the Trojans off his list.

Citing an unnamed source close to the situation, but unable to speak publicly about recruiting (i.e. sketchy), ESPN Los Angeles’ Pedro Moura is reporting that the Trojans “have not contacted the San Diego native and have no immediate plans to do so.”

In his conversation with Schad, Forcier mentioned that he wished to be closer to home so his family could better afford to see him play.

Forcier, if he were to transfer to USC (or any Division 1 school for that matter), would have to sit out a year per NCAA rules. Currently, USC is crowded at the quarterback spot with three signal-callers  — Jesse Scroggins, Cody Kessler and Max Wittek — with four years of eligibility remaining.

    Forcier wouldn’t fit in our offense

    Who the hell does this guy think he is to be recruiting himself to these schools?

    Complete knucklehead. I know. Michigan is my team.

    As I said before, AT BEST, he’d be the back up if Matt doesn’t come back next year and there’s just too much talent ahead of him and they have no problem competing for the job or else they would have never enrolled at USC because of all the great QB talent that they attract. I’d recommend Delaware but they also get some good talent and that would mean competing there, as well.

    Another “student athelete”

    Forcier failed out of school. It’s being kept relatively quiet, but that’s the truth. It’s why Miami wasn’t interested. He’s probably not eligible to play right away.

    he’s a total moron. kid created a website following his own recruiting process in high school

    I am glad this kid did not choose to go to Miami (or the feeling was mutual between Golden and him as reported)….what a head case !!!!

    Sadly, this is what happens when someone becomes a Legend in his Own Mind.

    A grounded Tate Forcier is a good kid. He just needs some help landing softly and not crashing.

    Easy folks. Most kids recruit themselves to a college.

    Exactly Jeff… although Tate has unfortunately taking it too far

    Tate can be a wing nut, but if you look at the website posted by cosanostra, half of it is thanking those who helped him, then plugging someone else.

    That’s not a totally self absorbed kid, just out of balance.
