USC Saturday Scrimmage Report
USC doesn't really hold full scrimmages anymore. It holds live-tackling periods, which then can be dissected by everyone.
Matt Fink completed a long pass to Michael Pittman and threw two short TD passes to Devon Williams and Jack Webster.
Amon-Ra St. Brown caught a short pass from Kedon Slovis and then ran downfield for a long gain. Slovis also threw a TD pass to tight end Erik Krommenhoek.
"We're looking at all four guys," Clay Helton said the QB competition.
Helton said the offensive line progressed the most so far in spring but JT Daniels was sacked twice during the scrimmaging.
Slovis is now considered part of the QB derby to start although it obviously would be quite something if he leapfrogged Daniels and Co.
Helton also said USC’s one penalty in 200 plays this week at practice.
That is certainly impressive. And unprecedented.
Or is it?
USC had one penalty in an 84-play scrimmage before 23,000 at the Coliseum on April 16, 2016.
So one penaltiy in 84 plays in front of a big crowd at the Coliseum vs. one penalty in 200 plays before 50-100 fans at Howard Jones Field.
The turnaround is remarkable!
