Still no QB set on game-week depth chart

8/24/2013

USC head coach Lane Kiffin released a depth chart for the season-opening game against Hawaii with a few notable position items:

USC Trojans• There was no starting quarterback named. It is listed as Max Wittek or Cody Kessler.

Chad Wheeler has been named the starting left tackle. That’s a big move for a redshirt freshman who has shown a lot of promise.

Lamar Dawson won the competition at Will linebacker in a battle against Anthony Sarao and Quinton Powell.

Josh Shaw began the fall at strong safety but the good play of Su'a Cravens helped allow Shaw to move to free safety.
