Clay Helton said today he wants a No. 1 tailback to emerge in 2021.
“We’d love to have a guy that can touch the ball from 22-25 times per game and a second guy comes in to spell him with 12-15 touches,” Helton said.
If I went based on what USC coaches tell me about spring practice performances, I would nominate Texas-transfer Keaontay Ingram for the No. 1 spot.
The only thing stopping that would be the soft spot Helton has for Vavae Malepeai. And we all know when Helton likes a player, it takes a lot to dislodge them.
