USC’s secondary took another hit today: Starting safety Bubba Bolden did not practice and there is no timetable for his return, according to Coach Clay Helton.
Isaiah Pola-Mao, a redshirt freshman, will start in place of Bolden.
So to recap, Bolden and Ykili Ross were battling to start at strong safety at the start of training camp. Ross is off the team and Bolden is in limbo.
Oh, and redshirt cornerback Je’Quari Godfrey also left the team this week.
UPDATED: I’m told there was an off-field incident this summer but not sure yet if that caused what appears to be the current suspension. And why it went down today is odd.
