A daily three-point briefing recapping the news and notes of USC athletics. Today it’s looking back at the OSU game, updates on injured Trojans, and the status of five-star commit Mykel Williams.
Oregon State review
Catch up on all the WeAreSC coverage of the Oregon State game (or however much you can stomach). Greg Katz said USC fans can finally unite. Marc Kulkin said a lack of trust is partly to blame. Kevin Bruce looked at some of the X’s & O’s in his Offensively and Defensively Speaking. And Chris Arledge provided his musings. And as always, the WeAreSC staff provided their 5 Things from the game, including surprise and biggest takeaway.
Head coach Donte Williams provided some injury updates during his Sunday evening media call.
Williams said Korey Foreman has been “dinged up a little bit.” He’s dealt with knee, groin and wrist injuries. Williams said he feels Foreman is now close enough to 100% where he can start contributing more.
Drake Jackson didn’t play a ton in the second half. Williams said he was hurt in the first half but played through. He also said Jackson was removed in certain personnel groupings when it “became a run-dominated type game.”
Kyle Ford missed the game with a knee injury that flared up late in the week.
Chris Thompson Jr. missed the game with a leg injury.
Status of Mykel Williams
Five-star USC defensive line commit Mykel Williams (Columbus, Ga./Hardaway) told On3’s Chad Simmons that he’s “still locked in with USC right now,” but went into much greater detail about the status of his commitment, plans for the future and pitches he’s getting from other programs.
