How ironic is it that USC might produce back-to-back first-round draft picks at offensive tackle in spite of itself?
No one would be surprised if Alijah Vera-Tucker joined Austin Jackson as a first-round draft pick. But the question would be why didn’t USC do more with the duo as college players?
USC was 13-13 in 2018-19 when it had Jackson/Vera-Tucker together to make an impact.
Just one more confounding fact of USC football.
- Iowa State coach Matt Campbell is now under contract through 2028 after getting three more years added to his deal. He would have been a lot cheaper to hire a year ago for some school (hint, hint).
- Wyoming assistant Brett Vigen was hired as head coach at Montana State. Former USC offensive line coach Tim Drevno was a candidate for the job.
