Aaron Corp returns in style but it will not alter the depth chart.
Here’s the San Jose State game depth chart. No real shocks. The defensive end spot remains undecided with Wes Horton and Malik Jackson (and Nick Perry) officially listed as all having a chance to start.
With Aaron Corp moving better than he did Thursday, USC coach Pete Carroll was asked after the scrimmage if he would have made a different decision at quarterback if he waited until Wednesday or Thursday of next week.
“No, No, No,” Carroll said.
Josh Pinkard played cornerback because Shareece Wright’s knee was sore and he remains ineligible. Will Harris starts at safety in Pinkard’s spot.
Here’s the mock game stats:
Matt Barkley 10-17, 159 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
