The news that Lane Kiffin was fired as USC's coach did not come as a complete surprise to Derik Calhoun, who said he's open to listening to other teams and considering other options as the Trojans begin the search for a coach.
The four-star linebacker from El Cerrito, Calif., had been looking at other visits and considering other schools as USC struggled through its early schedule. He had been committed to the Trojans since early July.
With Kiffin out, Calhoun said he wants to talk with those closest to him, figure out things and do it as a prospect who's completely open in his recruitment. His father said Calhoun has not de-committed from USC, however.
"I am going to talk to my dad about it," Calhoun said. "It's kind of hard right now that he got fired. It's just, I don't know.
"I'm going to open it up."
USC's loss could be another Pac-12 program's gain as Calhoun, who looked good over the summer at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge presented by Under Armour, books other trips.
Rated as the ninth-best outside linebacker and the No. 147 prospect in the 2014 class by Rivals.com, Calhoun said he will visit Arizona State and he's considering trips to Washington State, Nebraska and UCLA.
Calhoun's brother, Kevin Griffin, is committed to Washington State, so that could play a factor as things move forward.
