The Trojans released the depth chart for Week 1 of the 2012 Season. There are many guys sharing a starter or back-up spot going into the first week, most notably (and unsurprisingly) at quarterback. Interesting to note, USC has listed the players’ Twitter handles next to their names.
Here’s a Twitpic courtesy of CBSSportsPac-12 of USC’s Week 1 Depth Chart:
Looking at this, let’s point out some of the more interesting listing.:
At MLB, Lamar Dawson IS listed as the starter against Hawaii, with Scott Starr backing him up. Hayes Pullard is at WLB, but obviously, if Dawson is not game-ready by next Saturday then Pullard will fill in for him.
This is the Trojans’ game plan as of now for their Sept. 1 showdown with the University of Hawaii, and as the season moves on and players evolve, it will undoubtedly change. It will be interesting to follow the progress of the guys listed with “ORs” next to their names (and even those further down the chart), and to see who rises to the occasion if their name is every listed on its own in bold font.
