The Trojans aren’t slowing down anytime soon.
That point was hammered home again today, when the Trojans...
Matt Barkley USC QB 6-2, 224 – Has been the leader of the Trojans since stepping on campus 4 years ago. During this time he has been more than impressive emerging into one of the most polished passers in USC’s long lineage of QBs.
