With the Trojans in the midst of their summer training schedule, here's a look at some of the top offseason storylines for a collection of players whom USC coach Steve Sarkisian will count on to produce at a high level this fall -- the wide receivers and tight ends.
Over the last two weeks we've been taking a look at some players who had big springs for their respective teams. Some are upperclassmen finally coming into their own, some are younger guys taking advantage of open spots on the depth chart, while others are leap frogging some older players and making a name for themselves.

We continue our look at breakout players from spring practice today with the USC Trojans. Breakout player: WR Nelson Agholor 2013 statistics: Started all 14 games and posted 56 catches for 918 yards with six touchdowns.
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.
Before Nelson Agholor walked up the Coliseum tunnel on Saturday following USC's spring game -- which marked the conclusion of five weeks of practice sessions under a new coaching regime led by Steve Sarkisian -- the junior wide receiver took a moment to reflect.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- There's no consolation prize when you lose a recruiting battle, just an empty feeling and an empty space on the big board. It hurts even more to lose a player on signing day, when there is no tomorrow and no other players on the big board to turn to.

There were many remarkable performances in the Pac-12 this year. And some remarkably bad ones. Of course, one team rolling is another team getting rolled. Here are some high & low lights of the 2013 season (conference games only).
Taking stock of Week 10 in the Pac-12. Team of the week: Is there any doubt? Stanford, again a substantial underdog to No. 3 and unbeaten Oregon, again controlled the line of scrimmage with its trademark physical style in a 26-20 victory on Thursday, that final score in no way reflecting the complete control the Cardinal had from bell-to-bell.
Five things we learned in the Pac-12 this week: 1. Oregon has a Stanford problem: Used to be the other way around. Last year it felt more like Oregon had a Stanford inconvenience, not so much a problem.
