The linebacker position for the Trojans this year can accurately be described as an embarrassment of riches as there is an impressive array of talent available for the coaches to choose from.

This unit has a chance to be one of the best in college football this year with a talented group at linebacker, a pair of honors candidates up front and an experienced group in the secondary. Pete Carroll returns to call the shots on defense and in his three years at USC it's been made clear that his defensive mind is at another level as it relates to the college game.
