A few months ago, Markeith Ambles was one the best players in USC's 2010 recruiting class. He was ranked as the third best wide receiver in the 2010 class by Rivals, and came to campus with other five-star recruits like Kyle Prater, Robert Woods and Dillon Baxter. Now?
Now Ambles is no longer a part of the team, as Lane Kiffin confirmed that Ambles was no longer a Trojan on Monday. Ambles had been suspended suspended a few weeks ago for showing up late to a couple of team functions. He had rejoined the team since his suspension, but was absent from practices last week, which led to speculation about his standing with the team.
While confirming that Ambles was off the team, Kiffin wouldn't comment on why he had left the team, just saying that he wished "him and his family the best of luck."
So far the class of 2010 seems to be causing Kiffin more headaches than anything else. While Robert Woods has contributed to the team, along with the suspension of Ambles and now his leaving the team, there's also Dillon Baxter and his golf cart rides that the Trojans have had to deal with.
