USC Football will officially add Caleb Williams, Tuli Tuipulotu, Andrew Vorhees, Brett Neilon, and Calen Bullock to the All-American Walk after the honors they received this offseason. Those honors were each one of them being selected as First-Team All-Americans this offseason. All five selections were well-deserved.

This team fell apart in the Pac-12 Championship Game when they had to play with no Vorhees and Neilon, with Williams too injured to bail out the backup offensive linemen. Williams was insanely good himself this year, winning the Heisman Trophy.

He and Tuipulotu were unanimous First-Team All-Americans, and Bullock had FIVE interceptions on the season. The All-American Walk is adding five big names that USC fans won't ever forget.

In former USC Football QB Sam Darnold's third start of the season for the Carolina Panthers, he played well, but the team lost. The bright side is that the 5-9 Panthers are still only one game out of the NFC South lead, however. There are still three more games to take the crown, and Darnold is still 2-1 as a starter this season.

Darnold had no chance behind a porous offensive line that had him sacked four times, yet he still averaged 9.8 passing yards per attempt on 23 passes. He did not have a turnover in the contest, and is yet to turn the ball over this season. He had a passing touchdown as well, and is now averaging an impressive 7.7 yards per pass attempt and an impressive 8.6 adjusted yards per pass attempt.


Former USC Football recruiting target Justin Flowe has transferred to the Arizona Football program. Flowe was considered a huge miss from USC in the 2020 recruiting class, but he has been very disappointing in his college football career at Oregon. He's played just 12 games in his three years, and picked up just 50 tackles in those 12 games with just 3.5 tackles for loss.

Flowe was recruited to Oregon by current USC Defensive Passing Game Coordinator Donte Williams, and many speculated that Williams and SC would go after him. USC appeared to not have a lot of interest in him, however, and rightfully so.

They ended up getting the better transfer pickup in Mason Cobb on Monday night anyway. Cobb had almost double the amount of tackles this past season than Flowe has had in his entire career, and had 13 tackles for loss. (Again, Flowe has only had 3.5 tackles for loss in his entire career.)
