USC is deep at wide receiver. Will that affect how Trojans use Bru McCoy?

Bru McCoy, the highly touted newcomer to the USC receiving corps, could play a big part in the Trojans' offense — if he can get regular targets.

Trojans sophomore receiver Drake London spent his quarantined summer focused on getting faster, playing more physically and tightening up his route running.Of those four, two have since transferred. Of the remaining two, Kyle Ford is currently injured and Munir McClain is suspended.

McCoy appears to be the furthest along of USC’s young receivers this season, though he’s hardly the only one earning early plaudits. Freshman Gary Bryant Jr. has also made an impression as a movable piece in the offense and a speedy returner on special teams. Helton also mentioned freshman Joshua Jackson Jr. and sophomore John Jackson as potential contributors.

Drake London looks to play an important, and still evolving, role for USC Trojans sophomore receiver Drake London spent his quarantined summer focused on getting faster, playing more physically and tightening up his route running.

Advertisement How long it might take for any of them to contribute in a meaningful way is to be determined. Standout bros While Marlon Tuipulotu was slated to step into a bigger role along USC’s defensive line, Tuli Tuipulotu was set to step into his older brother’s shadow. So far, both have impressed. Helton singled out Marlon as one of the standouts of Saturday’s scrimmage, praising his leadership in the absence of All-Pac-12 defensive tackle Jay Tufele, who opted out of the season. The younger Tuipulotu, meanwhile, has had “one of the better camps of anybody on our team,” Helton said. Advertisement “He looks like a monster,” Helton said of the freshman defensive end. “He’s 275 but runs like he’s 240 — I mean, great athleticism, has pass-rushing skills. Obviously, his older brother is on him every day making sure that he’s doing right on and off the field, so he has a really bright future.” Notes Junior linebacker Kana’i Mauga continues to deal with a hamstring injury, but Helton said he expects Mauga to be ready for USC’s opener against Arizona State. … Redshirt junior linebacker Juliano Falaniko severely sprained an ankle that will keep him out several weeks. … Cornerbacks Dorian Hewett and Jayden Williams are both dealing with minor back injuries and are expected to return to practice in the coming days.
