The USC Trojans will continue their search for a quarterback with their spring game on Saturday.
The defending Pac-12 Champions are preparing to defend their crown by ramping up spring practice. With construction to the LA Coliseum taking place, spring has been a bit different for the USC Trojans, but they have plenty of work in front of them.
Clay Helton and his staff are in the process of finding their next starting quarterback. Replacing a player the caliber of Sam Darnold is going to be one of the most difficult tasks that they have had thus far under Helton’s tenure.

Right now, Matt Fink is the only quarterback on the roster with any amount of experience and even then, the sample size is still small. The spring game, which is a little different than most years this year, will give yet another opportunity for the Trojans to gauge their position.
They also will have some new faces emerge at the wide receiver spot and guys that have been waiting in the wings ready to take over the running back spot. The good news is that they are veteran-heavy up front.
The Trojans’ offensive line is one of the most experienced units in the conference, along with the tight ends as well. The quarterback that ends up lining up under center will have some serious help in front of him.
Defensively, USC is as stout as they come. They were best in the nation at getting after the quarterback last season and while they have lost a couple of key pieces, they still have dynamic defensive talent across the board. Look for this unit to potentially be the best overall in the conference this upcoming season.
