OLB Calhoun decommits from USC

USC had been on a mini-run of commitments since the firing of Lane Kiffin, but interim head coach Ed Orgeron’s recruiting efforts took a blow Monday when ESPN 300 outside linebacker D.J. Calhoun (El Cerrito, Calif./El Cerrito) decommitted from the Trojans.

The decision had been brewing for weeks. Calhoun made an official visit to Arizona State over the weekend, stayed in Tempe, Ariz., through Monday and opted to re-open his recruitment altogether.
