USC Morning Buzz: Big Spring For Quarterback Jalen Greene

JALEN.GREENE

USC quarterback Jalen Greene said “quarterback’s the plan” when I asked him if he would try any other positions this spring. There’s been talk that some coaches wanted him to try cornerback.

This is a big spring for Greene because he needs to see where he fits in before the Trojans add another quarterback (Sam Darnold) and how his reps compare to the other freshman (Ricky Town). Greene does not want to play another position so he needs to try and make an impression now or the usual transfer rumors will start again.

UCLA 85, USC 74

The good news is the Trojans lost by only 11 points. The bad news is USC lost again and finished 3-15 in Pac-12 play. Katin Reinhardt made 5 of 7 shots from 3-point range and finished with 22 points.

The news is that Henry Bibby, who used to love this say UCLA didn’t do much for him, attended the game. Bibby spoke to USC’s coaches after the game.

USC Rumor Of The Day

An interesting item I heard at USC is that walk-on Chris Willson has applied for a sixth-year of eligibility. But if he receives, would consider transferring to another school and playing quarterback.

Bob Connelly On Max Tuerk

TUERK

I asked new offensive line coach Bob Connelly if he would alter the unorthodox snapping style of center Max Tuerk.

“I’m not a guy that’s got to do things my way,” Connelly said. “I play to the strength of my guys. If it’s not broke, why fix it?”
