Don’t expect too much to be gained from this week’s spring practices. They are in shorts and usually you can’t tell too much.
Former USC quarterback Mark Sanchez, who lives in South Orange County, is at practice today.
Defensive end Hunter Echols made light of his situation before practice when he said, “I’m still here, baby.”
Strength coach Aaron Ausmus is at practice in his second day on the job.
UPDATED: Lynn Swann actually made it to practice.
Cornerback Olaijah Griffin did not practice. And he’s supposed to start.
Clay Helton said Velus Jones and Greg Johnson are in the NCAA transfer portal “right now,” which means USC hopes they return to the team.
As USC practices, the baseball team is playing Loyola-Marymount next door at Dedeaux Field. Loyola leads, 7-2, in the fifth inning.
Loyola leads, 10-5, heading to the bottom of the seventh.
Loyola wins, 14-5. What a disaster. USC is 4-7 overall and has played 11 home games.
