USC’s tailback depth and recruiting dominate this segment.
Could I assist you for a day during Spring practice? I’ve never had the chance to watch when I was at SC. Thanks.
A: I don’t think USC’s compliance office will allow it.

Do you think Pio Vatuvei was a “Plan B” recruit just in case coaches couldn’t snag one of their primary targets and that’s why he ended up a U-DuB? In other words, did that turn him off?
A: When he committed I did not consider him a typical commitment. And when it became clear Leonard Williams would commit, I think he got cold feet. I also think he wanted to play end and thought USC would stick him at tackle.

Scott do the coaches have any kind of emergency plan in place for the RB corps? For example, let’s say McNeal gets hurt and J Allen doesn’t really pan out again this year and doesn’t impress…what then? DJ Morgan takes every snap? Farmer back to RB? Penner starts as true Freshman at USC running back?
A: Farmer and Nelson Agholor would be emergency tailbacks. Agholor is going to play there anyways. And Pinneer could be a big tailback if necessary.
