Watch Gary Klein and Lindsey Thiry discuss USC spring practice

USC began spring practice Tuesday on Cromwell Field. The Trojans will practice 15 times, including five in the Coliseum.

Eight starters return on offense, but receiver Nelson Agholor and tailback Javorius Allen must be replaced after they announced for the NFL draft.


The defense returns seven starters but lost All-American defensive lineman Leonard Williams to the draft.

Beat reporter Gary Klein joins me to discuss what to watch for this spring.

Here's the rundown:

  • Preseason expectations
  • Tight end Bryce Dixon absent
  • Five midyear players join team
  • USC on the rise?
