Mike Bolio update

Harbor College QB/PR/KR Michael Bolio submitted his paperwork to USC admissions last week and is awaiting word on if he will be able to enroll at USC in the fall.

Bolio (6-0, 190) earned 1st team JC All-American honors last year as an all-purpose player after starring at QB, punt returns and kick returns. He played at North Torrance HS where he graduated in 2002 and redshirted for two seasons before eventually playing as a freshman last year. He will have four years to play three.

"He hurt his hamstring in high school when he was running track (10.6 in the 100 meters) and it never loosened up so he sat out the first year," said his father Mike. "He got into a car accident and had a little bit of a concussion so he had to sit out a second year just to be safe. Last year he finally got to play and, to be honest, he expected all of this. He just works so hard. If he applies himself with the same work ethic he has shown so far he will be fine."

Bolio will be entering USC as a receiver behind Steve Smith and Chris McFoy while also serving as a back-up on punt and kickoff returns.

His father said his son made it clear to the USC coaches that he is looking to make an immediate impact with the Trojans "He told them, I don't want to redshirt or look to next year. I want to come in and compete right away."
