This was the best quote of spring practice Tuesday and it came from running backs coach Kiel McDonald.
“No matter what everybody has done prior to being here, they’ve done nothing for the Trojans, myself included,” McDonald said. “We have to adhere to the standards.”
This is true. And the fact McDonald is telling the truth on Day 1 is a good sign. Some players have done nothing for USC and they’ve been here awhile.
- And here’s a good quote from quarterback Miller Moss on Lincoln Riley that sounds damning of Clay Helton/Graham Harrell:
“He has a formula that we as players can believe in because it’s worked. We’re not just throwing stuff on the walls and hoping it sticks,” Moss said.
- Well, it looks like defensive end Korey Foreman is “limited” according to Riley.
“We expect that to change here as spring goes on,” Riley said.
Offensive lineman Bobby Haskins, a transfer from Virginia, is also limited.
“We certainly expect them to participate in a full manner before the spring is over,” Riley said.
- Here’s new offensive line coach Josh Henson on if you can teach the line to be more physical?
“I think physicality can be taught because I think you can inspire guys to play more physical. I think you can challenge guys to play more physical.”
- Riley on the transfer portal after spring practice: “There are going to be double-digit additions. There’s no question about it.”
