Tailback Stafon Johnson was interviewed during the Senior Bowl:
“It’s wonderful. To come here and play against some of the great guys in the country. It’s awesome. i was more anxious than nervous to be here. I’m a football player. I’ve been playing all my life. I’m just happy to be here.”
USC senior associate athletic director Mark Jackson’s been offered a front-office job with the Seattle Seahawks. He actually was offered right after Pete Carroll got hired but is still weighing his options.
There’s been little buzz around USC that linebacker Jordan Zumwalt of Edison High in Huntington Beach would become a Trojan after Pete Carroll quit. But will Zumwalt’s visit this weekend make a difference? He remains a soft verbal to Stanford. And USC desperately needs some linebacker commitments.
