Kessler experienced, but is that enough? 

January, 28, 2014
With the news that the Trojans received a verbal commitment over the weekend from one of the top quarterbacks in the Class of 2015, there was automatically a lot of message board speculation about the state of the USC depth chart at the position in future years.

There is no doubt that the newest future Trojan -- Ricky Town from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure -- will one day play into the mix for the signal-caller job, as will Max Browne and Jalen Greene. For the more immediate future, incumbent starter Cody Kessler heads up the position while veteran Max Wittek, with two starts under his belt, has to be considered as well.

What was interesting about some of the discussions were the thoughts on Kessler being in competition for his job now, or even in a potential senior season. Even though Kessler put up solid numbers in his sophomore season while guiding the Trojans through a season full of adversity, there were still plenty of USC fans who made it clear of their desire for Browne to get a shot at the job sooner rather than later.
