If you are keeping score at home, USC’s busy transfer portal has taken a distinct look that may not exactly best meet the Trojans’ needs.
Now it’s still early and there will be activity through the spring but let’s take a look at the current transfer portal class: USC has taken eight wide receivers and defensive backs but just three offensive/defensive linemen.
I wouldn’t complain if it were reversed and USC took eight offensive/defensive linemen and three receivers/cornerbacks.
You can argue USC needs wide receivers/corners, but this feels lopsided and reminiscent of the Helton era. USC always gets skill players. But recently it has problem with linemen.
And let’s not forget the other area where USC really needs help: Linebacker.
Where are all the linebacker transfers? USC might get linebacker Lorenzo McCaskill of Louisiana but who else?
Bottom line: The transfer portal class is still being put together but as of today, it needs more help at key positions.
