Tuesday morning throwing session

Check out the FOX Sports NEXT notes and highlights of Tuesday morning's throwing session on Cromwell Field...

Not every throwing session can go down as 'the most spirited, ever'... so let's put Tuesday's as one of the more mellow, slow moving sessions of the summer.

That's not to say USC players didn't accomplish anything during the early morning workout which started just a few minutes after 7 a.m. and wrapped up around a 8:15 a.m., but compared to Friday - it didn't compare.

The team spent a portion of the players-only workout going through 7on7 and lineman drills. Freshman Max Browne manned the playcalling card, rotating reps with Max Wittek, Cody Kessler, and walk-on Chris Wilson.

Notable plays during 7on7 included a nice grab on a deep pass by Victor Blackwell from Max Wittek and an impressive pass breakup by safety Dion Bailey.

Cornerback Anthony Brown had a shining moment during 11on11 drills, breaking up a Kessler pass intended for receiver Nelson Agholor. Freshman Leon McQuay nearly picked the walk-on, Wilson, when he fired for Blackwell. McQuay continues to show great instincts getting to the ball -- and it payed off a few minutes later. During the two-minute drill as Browne was marching down field, he threw a deep pass, intended for fellow freshman Darreus Rodgers. McQuay took a step into the route and jumped up to grab the pick.

The next two-minute drill was lead by Wittek who only needed one play to throw a bomb downfield to Agholor who easily ran it into the end zone for the throwing session finale.

Back on the field participating for the first time this summer was cornerback Devian Shelton. Still absent, as he has been most of the summer, was tailback Silas Redd.

USC will be back on the field Thursday for another voluntary throwing session. Marqise Lee and Hayes Pullard will be attending Pac-12 Media Day with Lane Kiffin on Friday.
