You might recall during training camp that USC coach Lane Kiffin said he was not disappointed with the football program being ranked ninth in the Pac-12 in its Academic Progres Rate score.
But Kiffin announced this week that he gave scholarships to four walk-ons: Kyle Yatabe, John Auran, John Akiba and Cody Skene. Kiffin also said they would graduate this semester.
That means they will all count toward USC’s next APR score. That’s one way to improve it.
