USC Morning Buzz: Lessons Of Spring Practice Edition

What did we learn about the football team from spring practice? What did we not learn? What position needs help? And has USC learned from last year?

Those are questions I answer in this article. Excerpt:

“ Exactly how much will Adoree Jackson play offense? The electrifying sophomore alternated each practice between offense and defense during the spring. On Saturday, he caught only one pass and had only two passes thrown at him before moving to defense for almost the entire 82-play scrimmage. How much Steve Sarkisian is willing to risk taking Jackson away from the defense will be a dilemma for him next year.”

In the above video, Su’a Cravens talks about defending Jackson and Steven Mitchell.
