After 11 days on defense, cornerback Adoree Jackson was moved over by head coach Steve Sarkisian tothe offensive side of the ball. In the above video quarterback Cody Kessler talks about his new target and how USC's Monday night scrimmage went.
Kessler is trying to improve upon his 39 touchdown and five interception performance from 2014. While Kessler will be without running back Buck Allen and wide receivers Nelson Agholor and George Farmer, he will get a lot more opportunities to play with Jackson this season. Jackson's role on the offensive side of the ball will be greatly expanded, and that isn't a bad thing after Jackson already looks like the best offensive player on the field after only one day on that side of the ball.
On Wednesday Jackson lined up at running back, slot receiver and at wide receiver, giving Kessler and this USC offense numerous ways to get him the ball. And while Cody Kessler is on many of the Heisman Trophy watch lists, Adoree Jackson could steal some of his votes with a big year. He is already one of the top cornerbacks in the conference and if he scores a bunch of touchdowns on offense and on special teams, his name will be thrown around for the Heisman as well.
