Yesterday we discussed the projected USC starting offense and special teams for the USC Trojans season opener in less than two weeks against the Minnesota Golden Gophers of the Big Ten conference.
The Trojans fall camp was very important to determine many starting positions, but the third scrimmage on Aug. 21 helped finalize most of the remaining starting positions.
Head coach Lane Kiffin told SCPlaybook that there are some positions that are too close to call but the staff will have a better idea of who to push after the third scrimmage on Aug 21. It was an excellent scrimmage and gave the coaching staff most of the information they need to make decisions.
In February we reviewed the USC projected depth chart after a top-five recruiting class. Let’s see what has changed since then.
