USC has had 35 players depart since Lincoln Riley took over as part of his rebuilding process.
But what about the remaining players who were not told by Riley that it was in their “best interest” to go elsewhere?
I spoke to a player Wednesday who said there were some tense moments.
“Some of us that are still here were worried we would get the call (to see Riley),” the player said. “We didn’t know what was going to happen. We definitely talked about among ourselves.”
Riley said Tuesday he is going to have “double-digit additions” of transfers after spring practice. The player I spoke to said he feels confident he will play next season but will feel better in June when scholarships get renewed.
