USC practice notes for Tuesday.

By: Dr. Spock

Helton will not name a starting QB in Spring.  Fink started off with the starters.  Sears and Holden Smith practiced with the backups.  Helton said Fink and Sears will tradeoff with the ones. 

Jack Jones is suspended for Sping practice and the 1st game for violating team rules.  Helton said Jones will focus on academics while sitting out.

Along with Jones, Dom Davis, Betiku, & Dan Imatrobhe were not at practice.  DL Tuipolutou, S Tell, RB Mailevapai, OL Lobedahn, and OL Frank Martin were all limited in drills.  Helton later said Imatrobhe, Betiku, Carr, and Tuipolutou are all out for Spring with injuries.

FB Reuben Peters practiced with the linebackers.  WR Velus Jones practiced some with the running backs.

Former players JuJu Smith Schuster, Steven Mitchell, Tony Burnett, and Marvin Pollard watched practice.  JuJu was wearing a skirt and caught some passes from the QBs during warmups.  JuJu had a film crew filming him. 

Helton said Roy Hemsley and Jalen Greene are trying to go the graduate transfer route at other schools.  OL Cole Smith and Nathan Smith are medically retiring but will remain with the team as student coaches. S Jamel Cook is also trying to transfer and would focus on academics in the Spring. 

Recent recruits DB Oliajiah Griffin and OL Liam Douglass will enter USC for Summer School.
