The Trojans are beginning their first offseason under new head coach Clay Helton. Though Helton has been with the program since 2010, this is the first time he will run his own program through spring camp.
There is plenty of work to do to get the young Trojan squad ready for a difficult opening slate to the 2016 season. On slate, there will be a quarterback battle between Max Browne and Sam Darnold, a puzzle to solve replacing Su’a Cravens and six early enrollees to embed into the team.
USC also announced the date of the Trojans Pro Day, which will take place on March 23 at 10 a.m. on Cromwell Field. However, the event is closed to the public.
