Whatever happened to the wide receiver rotation promised in the spring and during training camp?
The coaches said before the season USC would employ eight wide receivers and that definitely hasn’t happened.
Velus Jones hasn’t caught a pass this season. I wonder if he regrets coming back? Devon Williams played so little he transferred to Oregon. Munir McClain drew praise in training camp but caught two passes. Drake London has caught three passes.
“It’s a number of things,” USC wide receivers coach Keary Colbert said on Trojans Live this week. “One thing, it’s a long season. The way things have been going thus far, doesn’t mean that necessarily it will continue that way throughout.
“Between going tempo and things of that nature, sometimes it’s hard to get guys in and out . . .
“At the end of the day, we want to play the three guys we got in there.”
So don’t expect things to change much barring injury.
