The Pac-12 just released their Preseason All-Conference Team, and USC football is tied with the most First-Team selections at six. Utah is the team tied with them. On the list is QB Caleb Williams, WR Jordan Addison, WR Mario Williams, OL Andrew Vorhees, DL Tuli Tuipulotu, and AP/ST Travis Dye.

USC has a more talented roster than Utah, though. Don't believe that? Well, the Pac-12 certainly does. They added four more Second-Team selections for USC. Utah only had three. Those Second-Team selections were RB Dye, OL Brett Neilon, DB Mekhi Blackmon, and RS Gary Bryant Jr.

It goes to show that while USC understandably shares the co-favorite title for the Pac-12 this year with Utah, they do at least have the best roster. After bringing in five four-star transfers this offseason, and two five-star transfers, most of the issues that can come up for USC aren't roster-related.

Most of USC football's issues that may come up this season are related to culture-building and chemistry.

As talented as this USC football roster clearly is, not everybody's played together just yet and established relationships on the field with great chemistry. The talent will most certainly be within the white lines, though, as four of the transfers SC picked up were First-Team selections and two of them were Second-Team selections.

They've clearly brought in the right guys, and are giving a top five head coach in America in Lincoln Riley the opportunity to work with a special roster. None of these selections were surprising, but they do prove that most of USC's great players are on offense.

The focus of the player development will clearly be on the defense this season, as this All-Conference Team picked by the Pac-12 itself shows that USC already has quite a bit of star power leading the offense.
