Defensive tackle Jamar Sekona was a surprise starter during Tuesday’s opening spring practice.
The reason why became apparent today when defensive coordinator Todd Orlando said Sekona changed his body during offseason workouts.
“We’re going to play the toughest dudes that we’ve got,” Orlando said.
Did anyone feel like Orlando instilled toughness season? I didn’t.
Orlando also praised safety Xavion Alford.
“I love his sense of urgency and his maturity for a young person, just having only one year of college,” Orlando said. “For him, the maturity level he has, has been really great.”
The question to such comments is why Alford couldn’t play more at Texas? But since he was at Texas, he will no doubt be highly regarded by the Lone Star State coaches at USC.
Orlando also praised cornerback Joshua Jackson, who wears No. 6, like Isaac Taylor Stuart. When does he change his number?
