USC coach Clay Helton said JT Daniels is not medically cleared and will undergo an evaluation after nect week’s spring break. Tailback Markese Stepp, who has been wearing a walking boot, is out for spring, Safety Talanoa Hufanga (shoulder) is also not cleared. Wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown is currently out with a sports hernia.
Now the offensive line: Jalen McKenzie did not practice and Andrew Voorhes missed last season.
This was the first-team O-line to start the first practice: Left tackle Alijah Vera-Tucker, Left tackle Justin Dedich, Center Brett Neilon, Right guard Liam Jimmons, Right tackle Jason Rodriguez.
That ain’t going to cut it during the season.
