2017 Spring Game review
The USC football team concluded the 2017 spring ball sessions with a 62-play practice at the Coliseum that gave the fans a look at the present, past and future of Trojan football.

How would you rate this spring camp as a whole compared to the last 7? (in the interest that last year's season was not a fluke).

Vaughns and Pittman shine in spring
Early in USC football spring drills Clay Helton made a statement that the offense will go as far as the young receivers go, his point being that the Trojans needed to replace a lot of production at the position in order for the offense to function at a high level.

Position Battle updates
Here’s an update on the various position battles that are going on during USC football spring ball.
Matt Fink has shown some good progress and is solidly in the second spot right now. I still think there is plenty of time for Jack Sears to make a move before the season starts but at this point there isn’t any question that ...
DeGabriel Floyd commits to USC
The USC football program adds another verbal as Class of 2019 linebacker DeGabriel Floyd from Hawkins has given a commitment to the Trojans.
Floyd (6-2, 215) had 85 tackles last year for Hawkins as a soph (48 solo) along with 10 sacks. He chose the Trojans over offers from schools such as Michigan, Notre Dame and Nebraska.

What We Learned Week 3 of USC Spring Ball
Here are some things we’re seeing through week 3 of USC football spring ball sessions:
One of the biggest position groups that needed to be reloaded was wide receiver, and Clay Helton even went as far as to say last week that the offense will go as far as the young receivers go who are replacing JuJu, Darreus, etc. I understand the point ...
