Don’t expect this glorified practice to prove too much if you are in attendance or watching the too-enthusiastic Pac-12 Network coverage.
It’s better to be here at Cromwell Field in person because otherwise you hear Yogi Roth sound like nothing is wrong with the Trojans.
On the other hand, USC security is telling people not to have their cell phones out . . . for some reason.
Markese Stepp had a long TD run and Matt Fink has made a few nice throws in the “showcase.”
The defense looked clueless on Stepp’s TD, by the way.
Freshman defensive lineman Drake Jackson intercepted a Jack Sears pass for a pick six. The video is below.
Clay Helton compared Jackson to Leonard Williams after the scrimmage.
One thing that hasn’t changed: The two starting offensive tackles did not participate. Helton said Jalen McKenzie hyperextended his elbow and Austin Jackson did not play because of personal reasons.
Former USC cornerback Jack Jones was among those who showed up for the game.
A one-handed pick-six in spring ball? Okay then, @The99Athlete. 👏
