When I frequently mention the USC offensive line being a weakness, there is another issue that goes hand-in-hand with it and doubles the Trojans’ dilemma.
Kedon Slovis hates pressure.
When I say that, I mean defensive pressure. He’s not especially mobile and has played behind a porous line his first two seasons. This leads to injuries and happy feet.
A troubling aspect of spring I’ve heard from a USC coach is the number of interceptions thrown by Slovis in the first nine practices.
This is one reason Jaxson Dart has emerged too because of his athleticism.
We won’t know until the fall if Slovis is “back” following his injury/mechanical issues. But even if he is, there will be the problem of dealing with pressure.
- Reserve QB Mo Hasan tore his ACL in Saturday’s scrimmage. That’s 2 torn ACL’s and a torn Achilles in nine practices.
