It was officially "unofficially" back to practice for the Trojans Tuesday morning on Cromwell Field.
The entire roster made its way to lifting, condition, and wrapped up with some 7on7 and 11on11 action.
7on7 got underway around 7:30. About 15 minutes later nearly half the team had to leave for class, including new freshmen Ty Issac, Khaliel Rodgers, Steven Mitchell, and Nico Falah -- along with a few of the early enrollees and multiple upperclassmen. The players said class started at 8 am.
2012 Biletnikoff Award winner Marqise Lee was back on the field since wrapping up his track and field season for the Trojans. Lee was admittedly a little rusty and dropped a few balls today. He does look even stronger and faster than even just this spring.
Lee says freshman quarterback Max Browne is coming along, noting that Browne's strength is no doubt his deep passes - but the shorter balls need some work.
Noticeably absent was senior tailback Silas Redd. Lee said he wasn't 100 percent positive, but thought Lee was in the training room rehabbing his knee.
The linemen worked in the far endzone during 7on7. Not much action there as the upperclassmen spent the majority of the 15 minutes showing freshmen the proper footwork and technique. Marcus Martin took the lead there.
The Trojans are expected to be back on the field Friday for another voluntary throwing session.
