Former Tennessee forward Renaldo Woolridge on campus today during his visit to USC.
USC’s baseball team opens a three-game series at Dedeaux Field against Oregon State. Meanwhile, the track team’s biggest event of the year, the dual meet against UCLA, takes place Sunday in Westwood.
However, the No. 1-ranked USC men’s volleyball team is not playing because the Trojans were upset by No. 2 UC Irvine at the Galen Center on Thursday night in the MPSF Tournament semifinals.
The long-awaited Expo Line finally opens this weekend. It is important from a football standpoint because USC will encourage fans to use it if the Trojans are ever forced to host a midweek game at the Coliseum.
Word of warning: Exposition Blvd. is expected to be closed between Figueroa and Vermont for most of the next three days.
Time to ask questions again. One per person please.
Nick Perry was asked about possibly facing Matt Kalil next season when Green Bay plays Minnesota.
“It’s great competing against guys I’ve went against and even practiced against at USC,” Perry said. “It’s going to be an opportunity and I’d love to get after him, and I’m excited for it.”
“In Green Bay, there’s great tradition to help improve my game.”
“Out of all the visits I took, Minnesota was the place I could see living for the next 10 years and finishing my football career.”
Here’s Minnesota coach Leslie Frazier on selecting offensive tackle Matt Kalil:
“We saw him as a guy that can be a Pro Bowler for a long time. It’s a great move for us.”
USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil got drafted by the Minnesota Vikings as expected. He just got selected one spot lower after the Vikings traded down a spot.
USC football players Tony Burnett, Marqise Lee and Nickell Robey are expected to compete in Sunday’s dual track meet at UCLA. All three are expected to compete in the long jump, Burnett will also do the triple jump while Robey (1st leg) and Lee (3rd leg) should run the 4x100m relay.
