Future of USC running game on display 

July, 9, 2012
The future of the USC running back position was on full display during the weekend at The Opening with both Justin Davis (Stockton, Calif./Lincoln) and Ty Isaac (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Academy) in attendance.

Both players made a nice impression with Isaac continuing to show that he can be an effective pass catcher and Davis performing well in the SPARQ testing events that measure a player’s athleticism. Isaac arrived late to the event so he did not get to take part in the SPARQ testing but Davis posted marks of 4.12 seconds in the shuttle, a 37.3 inch vertical and a 40.0 foot throw in the power ball.

“I had never done the power ball before so I was kind of surprised with how I did,” Davis said. “I ran a 4.68 in the 40 but that event isn’t really my thing; I’m not what you would call a speed back.”
