Photo Report - USC Practice Day 2
Former walk-on Clay Matthews has had a very impressive two days of practice thus far. He has gotten bigger over the summer, and shows good quickness from his outside linebacker position.
Here is Matthews making a play in the open field against wide receiver Ronald Johnson who caught a short pass. It was one of several times the past two days that Matthews could be seen making plays against wide receivers, showing off his quickness.
Line of the Day: "You're not ready to swim with the big fish, you're still just a guppy", starting offensive guard Chilo Rachal quipped at super freshman Everson Griffen after Griffen was beaten handily on the previous play.
Chauncey Washington had a terrific run as he worked his way through traffic, then broke loose with Taylor Mays in pursuit.
Charles Brown has looked terrific at the right tackle spot. The redshirt sophomore has been getting a lot of work with senior Drew Radovich missing some practice. The tackle spot looks to be in good hands next year for the Trojans as well.
There are several positions that the 2007 version of the Trojans have an embarrassment of riches. USC is stacked at running back, and C.J. Gable looks to build on a productive true freshman campaign.
Brian Cushing is a physical linebacker that is looking forward to getting out of the shells and hitting someone.
Tight ends Anthony McCoy (pictured) and Fred Davis had solid days on Tuesday after battling inconsistency on Monday. They caught the ball much better, and David in particular had a great catch over the middle as he elevated over two defenders.
Allen Bradford shows good patience as he sets up a nice block from Brown.
Fully recovered from an injury that cut his promising freshman season short, Stanley Havili was the star of Tuesday's practice. Havili has good hands and the athleticism of a tailback.
