Rowe Booted From Program and School

USC fullback Alfred Rowe now has something else in common with his former Long Beach Poly High school teammate, Vincent Joseph. Both are now former Trojans, after officially being dismissed by the University, for poor academic performances. Rowe still has the opportunity to appeal for possible re-enrollment in 2009, but expect to see him on the sidelines or campus until then.

The recruiting trail: The 10th best linebacker prospect, according to rivals.com, Jelani Jenkins, visited USC on Monday. And although Dominguez Linebacker, Marquis Simmons, has a verbal commitment to USC, he was spotted in attendance at UCLA’s one-day camp. Hmm.

Stepping down: Tom Hansen will be stepping down as the Pac 10 commissioner in 2009. I can’t say I’ll be sorry to see him go, because he did little to promote the conference, in comparison to some of the other commish’s in the Big 6. Ironically, his announcement follows that of the Big East commish. Both the Big East and Pac 10 are conferences shadowed in football by the other BCS partners, but have a stage for basketball.
