I did a Twitter Spaces conversation last week where I said freshman Jaxson Dart is really QB1-A, not QB2.
Why do I say that?
Because that’s what I hear from some people on the coaching staff. They seem eager to get a look at Dart in an actual game, which leads me to believe he will get playing time even if Kedon Slovis stays healthy, which is unlikely for an entire season.
You might laugh but some at USC suggest to me Dart is better than Slovis. They like his athleticism, which is extremely valuable given USC’s shaky offensive line.
Did someone tell Brendan Costello, the preferred walk-on and former Oklahoma State QB? Or did he transfer to USC primarily for an education and to be closer to home?
- Isaiah Jewett, who won the 800 meters at the NCAA championships, finished second at the U.S. Olympic Trials last night and made the U.S. Olympic Team. Jewett was actually at UC Irvine for two seasons before he transferred to USC.
