Steve Sarkisian told Colin Cowherd he expected to start the season with 65-70 players on scholarship. With Xavier Grimble turning pro, USC can have a maximum of 72 scholarship players next season. If Hayes Pullard and Josh Shaw turned pro, it would be 70.
The way it could change is if someone like walk-on quarterback Randall Cunningham II earns a scholarship. Next year could be a good time to walk-on at USC.
