USC Morning Buzz: Who Is Standing Out At Practice?

Scott Wolf

USC's practiced for a week with no media or public. So I've asked some sources who is standing out?

  • Wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, an unsurprising pick, was mentioned.
  • So was tailback Stephen Carr, who is quality snaps as Markese Stepp is being brought back slowly from last year's ankle injury and Vavae Malepeai had a hamstring injury last week.
  • The most surprising name was true freshman offensive lineman Courtland Ford. But his emergence so early means it is likely he will be put into the rotation, especially if he plays guard.

A buddy of mine was able to get on campus. He is LAFD commander. Said it was a ghost town. Wonder if they let the Cypriot on campus?

Are (real) reporters allowed at practice, or is this the opinion of an unnamed source? The guard at the gate or the janitor might not know as much about football as a trained observer such as the fly on the wall. A fly on the wall knows all the shtuff worth knowing.

Slovis will be fine regardless of how he practices ---all I want is for him to start the season healthy...

Having 6 games against mostly non-physical PAC12 South teams (and WSU) should be awesome learning experience for the true Soph Slovis. If he can compete in all 6 games, maybe play in the Champ game--vs a physical Oregon (or Stanford or Cal) team, and maybe get in a good Bowl game, then he should be well-poised for an epic 2021.

Though I haven't forgotton about that arm injury vs Iowa, my worry for Kedon in 2020 is concussion.....
Cautiously optimistic for the O-line.
I expect big things from the running game this year. I think Harrell secretly likes a strong running game.

Drake London? OMG!
