Kiffin names captains

Lane Kiffin announced the 2013 USC team captains on Monday:

  • WR Marqise Lee (Jr.): The 2012 Biletnikoff Award winner has 191 catches in his two years with the Trojans and currently owns or shares 22 USC records.

  • OL Marcus Martin (Jr.): The versatile Martin stepped into the starting line-up at left guard three games into his true freshman season but moves to center this year.

  • LB Hayes Pullard (Jr.): With 25 career starts at outside linebacker, Pullard moves inside in the new 5-2 scheme.

  • OLB Devon Kennard (Sr.): After seeing time at middle linebacker and defensive end early in his career, Kennard returns for his final year in a role that seems perfect for him.

Kiffin also announced that four walk-ons would be awarded scholarships for the 2013 season; TB John Akiba, S John Auran, WR Cody Skene and LB Kyle Yatabe.
