Su’a Cravens was named to the watch list for the Lott Trophy today. Full list after the jump:
Athlon’s conducted a poll, which I voted in, to rank the Pac-12 football jobs. No surprise that USC was ranked the No. 1 by everyone. Oregon was No. 2 and UCLA No. 3. Full results here.
Last weekend, former USC star offensive lineman Tony Boselli attended the spring football game at the Coliseum. This week, his son Andrew, committed to Florida State. Andrew Boselli, an offensive guard, was not offered by USC, which makes him one of the few juniors who has not been offered by the Trojans. I’m sure he’ll survive playing for Jimbo Fisher.
What is going on with USC women’s basketball? Freshman guard McKenzie Calvert, who averaged 10.2 points per game, and forward Amy Okonkwo, who averaged 3.3 points, received their releases to transfer and will go elsewhere.
Another freshman, Chyanne Butler, transferred at the beginning of the season. And of course, point guard Ariya Crook was dismissed from the university after getting arrested before the season. Oh, and forward Kiki Alofaituli disappeared midway through the season.
There are six players on the current roster returning next season.
USC defensive end Jimmy Gunn, a consensus All-American who was part of “The Wild Bunch” defensive line in 1969, died on Saturday in Los Angeles of heart failure. He was 66. A service will be held on April 24 at 11 a.m. at Greater St. Luke Church of God in Christ (3195 L St., San Diego 92102).
Gunn was an All-American in 1969 and played six seasons with the Chicago Bears before he retired in 1976 and is a member of the USC Hall of Fame. The Wild Bunch, named after the landmark 1969 Western movie of the same name, consisted of Gunn, end Charles Weaver, tackles Al Cowlings and Tody Smith and middle guards Willard “Bubba” Scott and Tony Terry.
