USC linebacker Quinton Powell is already working with an eye toward next season.
The sophomore from Florida is on a mission to add muscle and bulk.
“I’m doing my best to work out a lot and I’m putting forth my best effort to eat every second,” said the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Powell. “My intention is to be 215 going into spring and gain more if I need to and be ready for next season.”
Powell has 13 tackles, including two for losses.
Powell was a back-up on defense and a standout on special teams. At the team banquet this week, he was recognized as the Trojans’ special teams player of the year.
“It meant a lot,” he said. “Special teams is something that I had to take ownership of. It made me a leader.”
