You know it’s bad when a USC assistant coach tells me if Austin Jackson goes pro the Trojans will have a “terrible offensive line” next season.
The line wasn’t great this season and Jackson is projected as a first-or-second round pick in spite of the Holiday Bowl.
Who will start a pool next season on how long Kedon Slovis lasts before he gets hurt? And then who replaces him? Matt Fink, who might transfer. A brittle JT Daniels?
Does anyone think that army of three-star offensive linemen that signed will be able to play next season?
UPDATED: Pro Football Focus just ranked USC as having the No. 31-ranked offensive line in the nation. O-K.
- Here is Rivals analyst Mike Farrell on whether USC recruiting is improving?
“Yes, the Trojans landed Gary Bryant and he’s a big-time playmaker on offense, but this class in 2020 is still very weak and lacks a ton of depth. The loss in the bowl game won’t help and don’t give me any excuses about recruiting infrastructure and all of that. This all has to do with Clay Helton and his shaky future.”
- Former USC basketball player Charles O’Bannon is transferring to TCU.
- Former USC basketball player Darion Clark, now a tight end, has signed a reserve/future contract with the Chicago Bears. Maybe Graham Harrell can claim Clark since he does not like to use tight ends.
