Spring practice is showing what will be USC’s perceived weakness going into the fall: Cornerback. It hasn’t helped that sophomore Kevon Seymour got hurt fairly early. But last year’s starter, Torin Harris, has been inconsistent.
It also doesn’t help that Leon McQuay is more of a safety than corner, according to defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast. Under normal circumstances, teams add some cornerbacks in the fall.
But USC’s only cornerback in this class, Chris Hawkins, is already in spring practice. But maybe he can develop enough by October. Or maybe 220-pound Su’a Cravens, who plays nickel back, can be forced into a spot if necessary.
