Remember during training camp there were so many breathless reports about how freshman tailback Kenon Christon was?
He hasn’t played and it looks like he will redshirt. The homers will say USC’s other tailbacks are so good he needs to redshirt.
Vavae Malepeai is solid but not a gamechanger. Stephen Carr‘s been disappointing outside of that long run vs. Washington while Markese Stepp seems to be out of favor with the coaches at times.
With Christon the fastest back you would think Graham Harrell could find a role for him, at least as a receiver out of the backfield.
