One thought on “USC has most underclassmen in NFL draft

  1. While I hate to lose great players who still have eligibility, and I especially hate to lose so many in one year, isn’t it great to have gotten three outstanding years out of Reggie, LenDale, and Darnell? I totally understand Matua leaving, and we did get two nice years from Justice (and he seems to have straightened himself out and kept out of more trouble). Traditionally coached programs don’t have a bunch of Freshman playing, and rarely have 3-year contributors. We got more from Reggie and LenDale in touchdown production than any program in history. I wish them the very best and look forward to next year!
