USC redshirt recap 

February, 8, 2012
Of the 28 recruits who entered USC last season and are still on the roster, 18 used a redshirt year in 2011 and will be anxious to hit the field for spring ball knowing that the training wheels are off and the competition for playing time truly begins.

WeAreSC offers a rundown of those 18, including the impression they made last season and what to expect in the coming year.

P Kristopher Albarado - Albarado couldn't overtake Kyle Negrete as the starting punter last season and with Negrete returning as a senior after a terrific season, it's difficult to imagine the coaches will make a change this year. Albarado will be ready to step into the role as a redshirt sophomore in 2013.
