College Football: Week 5 USC at Washington

#21 University of Southern California (3-1) vs #17 Washington Huskies (3-1)

***

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA | PAC-12 CONFERENCE

Coach: Clay Helton

USC Players to watch

***Freshman DE Drake Jackson (6-4/275)

While just a true freshman, Drake Jackson is a freakish athlete, leading the team in tackles for loss and sacks. He has excellent get off, he’s shown plenty of power, and football IQ. Look for him to spend a lot of time flushing opposing quarterbacks out of the pocket.

Senior WR Michael Pittman, Jr. (6-4/215)

Pittman Jr’s dad, Michael Pittman, played in the NFL for 11 years for the Arizona Cardinals and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, winning the super bowl in 2003 with the Buccaneers while starting at running back. Pittman Jr. has racked up 31 receptions — including 10 for 232 last week against Utah — so far this season.

Senior MLB John Houston, Jr. (6-3/220)

Entering the 2019 season, Houston has 167 tackles, including 6 for losses (with 2.5 sacks), plus 9 deflections, a fumble recovery, a forced fumle and an interception in his career.  He has appeared in 37 games in his career, with 23 starts.

***rFreshman CB Isaac Taylor-Stuart (6-2/205)

In the secondary, USC will have redshirt freshman Isaac Taylor-Stuart back from concussion protocol. Stuart, a highly touted recruit out of Helix High in La Mesa (Calif.), was forced to sit last week’s game after he was not medically cleared to play. He enters the game with 7 solo tackles and 1 PBU.

WASHINGTON HUSKIES | PAC-12 CONFERENCE

Coach: Chris Peterson

Washington Players to watch:

*Junior QB Jacob Eason (6-6/227)

Eason spent 2016 and ’17 in Georgia. He sat out 2018 per NCAA transfer rules. He’s threw for 349 yards and 4 touchdowns in the season opener vs Eastern Washington, but was limited to 162 passing yards and no touchdowns in week two vs Cal. The former Lake Stevens High star with the explosive right arm said before the BYU game that he thought the offense was still trying to find it’s identity.

*Junior RB Salvon Ahmed (5-11/195)

“He’s a game changer,” Offensive Coordinator Butch Hamdan said. “He’s a guy that if you make a small mistake, fit the wrong gap or take a bad angle, then he can break a game wide open.” Ahmed, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.32 seconds, missed the game last week with an unspecified leg injury. He’s currently got 246 yards in three games.

Senior NB Myles Bryant (5-8/182)

Bryant is versatile enough to play any of the five positions in the secondary. He was named Second Team All-PAC-12 last year. This year, he’s picked up where he left off. So far this year, Bryant has 24 tackles and two Ints. He projects at nickel at the next level.

Senior LT Trey Adams (6-7/334)

In 2017, Adams had an ACL injury, and in 2018 a back injury. Should he stay healthy, Adams looks like a first round prospect. He possesses impressive athletic ability for a such a big man. He’s quick, agile, and very light on his feet when playing in space. From a measureables and athleticism standpoint, Adams has all the tools to go high in this year’s draft.
