Six USC signees in the class of 2008 did not report with the rest of the class for Summer Session II Tuesday because they have not yet met the academic or qualifying requirements.
According to a source familiar with the situation, it is highly unlikely DE Chaz Sutton and OL Elliott Williams will make it in to school. Sutton said Tuesday that if he does not get in to USC, he will enroll at Fork Union Prep, Va., for the semester with plans to enroll at USC in January.
The source said DE Ronald Byrd and DB Darrell Simmons are 50-50 at best for getting in to USC.
Junior college DL Jarriel King has the best chance to make it in of those who are questionable. King is taking a math class he needs for admission to USC.
