It was a busy week for USC football with one player transferring and two high school verbals, along with the upcoming Oakland Nike Camp. The news that tailback Ty Isaac was going to transfer came out of the blue.
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.

LOS ANGELES - The first thought when seeing No. 29 enter Goux Gate and sprint onto USC's practice field is that he must be either a tight end or an H-back. On the contrary, sophomore Ty Isaac is an extremely gifted running back, whose potential is nearly as big as his size, which is easy to pick out in the Trojans' new shotgun formation.
The upcoming spring practice sessions will be the first official opportunity for Steve Sarkisian and staff to view the players on the field, and the coaches have been clear that they want to see the players in action before determining certain position spots.
