USC football: Roster updated with Delvon Simmons and walk-ons
USC updated the roster that appears in its media guide, adding transfer Delvon Simmons and 19 walk-ons.
NCAA transfer rules require Simmons, a defensive lineman who played at Texas Tech, to sit out this season. He will be eligible in 2014 and have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
The walk-ons include offensive lineman Abe Markowitz, who was granted a sixth season of eligibility by the NCAA, quarterback Chris Willson, a transfer from Wake Forest who will redshirt, and quarterback Ted Landers, who played at Gardena Serra High and made stops at UCLA and Mt. San Antonio College.
