LOS ANGELES -- Almost everyone agrees that a reconstructed and heavily scrutinized offensive line will be key to the USC Trojans' success this season. The responsibility for this unit rests with new offensive line coach Tim Drevno.
No position group at USC entered the spring surrounded by more uncertainty than the offensive line. With the key losses of Marcus Martin, Kevin Graf, John Martinez and Abe Markowitz, a new position coach in Tim Drevno, and the offense transitioning into Steve Sarkisian's up-tempo, shotgun-based attack, no one knew quite what to expect.
LOS ANGELES -- USC head coach Steve Sarkisian took his turn on the phone on Thursday during the Pac-12 football coaches teleconference, revealing that among his biggest concerns for the Trojans heading into the fall is finding the right combination along the offensive line.
Here's our look back at the Trojans' progress during spring. MVP Garry Paskwietz: Nelson Agholor Johnny Curren: Agholor Greg Katz: Agholor, Hayes Pullard Curren: From the start of spring ball to last Saturday's finish no other player performed at such a sky-high level, and with such consistency, as Agholor.
The issue had been there since Zach Banner stepped foot on the USC campus in 2012. Banner was an All-American offensive line recruit with tremendous potential. But at 6-foot-9, there was always a question if he was too tall to get the effective knee bend required for leverage against an opponent.
