Two Trojans get extra years of eligibility

Two USC players have been granted an extra year of eligibility due to medical hardship by the Pac-10.

Cornerback Marshall Jones and defensive lineman Hebron Fangupo, who both suffered season-ending injuries in the third game of the 2009 season against Washington State, now will enter spring practices with two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Both were expected to be key contributors in 2009 before getting hurt. The 330-pound Fangupo had two tackles and half a sack in limited playing time, while Jones had four tackles.
