This question ties into a side issue that apparently upset someone inside Heritage Hall.
Q: Has Taylor Mays had the same off-season weight issues/concerns that were publicized last year?
A: This is something I’ve been meaning to mention this week. Taylor Mays was 6-3, 227 pounds when he was measured after spring practice. Last year, he weighed 232 pounds. So I think he’s got his weight issue under control.
By the way, a USC official emailed me this week, unhappy that I provided accurate measurements for players instead of the “official” measurements on the rosters. I figured the readers would like to know the truth.
