Every spring, a handful of players make names for themselves. Here are pairs for each Pac-10 team -- one on offense and one on defense -- who should make names for themselves into the fall.
FB Taimi Tutogi: The sophomore can play fullback, tailback or tight end. At 6-foot-2, 258 pounds, he packs a punch.
DT Sione Tuihalamaka: The redshirt freshman appears to be a potential starter inside, replacing Earl Mitchell.
OT Evan Finkenberg: The redshirt freshman is likely to start at one tackle spot for the Sun Devils.
DE Greg Smith: The true sophomore backed up Dexter Davis last fall. Word is he's a high-motor guy.
NT Kendrick Payne: The sophomore had a great spring and may unseat Derrick Hill as the starter.
WR Justin Hoffman: The sophomore not only caught everything thrown his way, he also is a tenacious blocker on the outside.
DE Dion Jordan: The sophomore switched sides of the ball from tight end and looks like a potential star.
DE Taylor Henry: The Beavers needed the sophomore to step up after Matt LaGrone quit the team. He did. Looks like a potentially dangerous pass rusher.
TE Levine Toilolo: The 6-foot-8, 244-pound redshirt freshman has an imposing frame as well as good speed. Made a lot of plays this spring.
LB Shayne Skov: The sophomore became a starter last year when Clinton Snyder blew out his knee. Don't be surprised if he earns All-Conference honors.
WR Randall Carroll: The true sophomore looked more like a receiver with great speed than a speed guy playing receiver this spring.
DT Nate Chandler: The junior moved from tight and immediately earned a spot in the starting lineup.
RB Dillon Baxter: The early-entry true freshman made more spectacular plays this spring than any other USC player.
SS Jawanza Starling: The sophomore was a standout in the rebuilding secondary, though he'll face a challenge from Drew McAllister in the fall.
RB Deontae Cooper: Cooper and fellow true freshman Jesse Callier made the most of their early entries, playing well enough to look like contributors next fall
FS Will Shamburger: The redshirt freshman was a standout from start to finish, and finished spring practices as the starter ahead of sophomore Nate Felner.
OT Wade Jacobson: The 6-foot-6, 307-pound JC transfer was a standout this spring and figures to start at one of the tackle spots.
DT Brandon Rankin: The touted JC transfer needs to gain a few pound in order to play inside but he looked like a dynamic presence much of spring.
