USC opens spring practice today in a familiar fashion: With a player leaving the program.
Wide receiver/cornerback Keyshawn Young has departed to transfer to another school. Young hasn’t made much of an impression at USC but he is another player whose departure comes at a time when he should see a path to playing time.
USC doesn’t have a lot of slot receivers right now other than Amon-Ra St. Brown.
But remember a few days ago a player told me “more players will transfer.”
One of the big questions this spring was going to be if the intensity/physicality of practices would change?
But with so many bodies leaving the program, it might be difficult to even have physical practices or scrimmage situations with so few receivers.
As usual, blame it on Clay Helton and Lynn Swann.
