Depth chart breakdown

USC head coach Lane Kiffin has yet to release an official end-of-spring depth chart but here is a breakdown of how things look for the Trojans as they head into the final week of spring:


Matt Barkley; Cody Kessler or Max Wittek

The only battle going on here is between Wittek and Kessler to be the No. 2 guy heading into the season. Nothing was decided this spring and the competition will carry over into fall. Jesse Scroggins put himself in a hole with academic issues that caused him to miss much of spring.


Curtis McNeal; D.J. Morgan; Buck Allen

It’s easy to imagine that Tre Madden would have been right there with Morgan in terms of getting reps behind McNeal. Now Morgan will have that back-up role all to himself, at least until Allen shows what he can do. Allen has the last three practices of spring to give a lasting impression before the off-season.
