USC Spring Camp: Practice Notes 3/14

The Trojans assembled at Howard Jones Field for another edition of spring camp on Thursday, and took part in a spirited session under a sunny, Southern California sky. Today’s practice went a lot better than Tuesday, which was sluggish, according to head coach Lane Kiffin. The men of Troy had a bit of an audience, with appearances made by former Trojans and potential future ones alike.

Here are the quick hits from Thursday afternoon:

  • Newcomer Leon McQuay played safety today. Up until now, he had been practicing with the cornerbacks.
  • WR Darreus Rogers had a good practice today, as did LB Lamar Dawson. Kiffin even went so far as to say that his past five practices have been his best ever at USC.
  • Freshman Justin Davis also stood out today. He constantly kept him legs moving for extra yards, and is showing early that he has incredible hands.
  • Marqise Lee wore pads but again stayed in Muscle Beach for rehab. Max Wittek also sat out again; both of them sustained minor knee injuries on Saturday.
  • WR George Farmer went down on Thursday, having hurt his shoulder. He left practice early, but no assessment of the injury has been given.
  • RB Silas Redd also left practice early, with a knee injury. He left of his own will power, and the ding is not thought to be a serious one.
  • Max Browne had a much better showing Thursday than on Tuesday. He is looking to make up some ground in the starting QB battle, with Max Wittek sitting out with a slightly sprained MCL.
  • Kiffin said that TE Xavier Grimble was the Practice MVP.
  • Former Trojan linebacker Rey Maualuga came to view practice, as did St. John Bosco offensive lineman Damien Mama and Upland receiver Jeff Farrar.
  • The Trojans practice next on Saturday in the Coliseum, at 2 p.m. This practice is closed to the public.
