"USC sprinter and Olympian Bryshon Nellum recently captured first in the 200- and 400-meter dash at the Pac-12 championships. At one point, there was talk of the speedy Nellum playing on the USC football team. Name three USC athletes through the years outside of football who would have made good football players if they had suited up for the Trojans."
Sam Clancy Jr. (basketball): At 6-foot-7, 240 pounds, Clancy had a frame and physical style that would have made for a terrific tight end or defensive end. His father, Sam Sr., was a defensive end in the NFL for 11 years. Clancy was a good enough basketball player to be named Pac-10 Player of the Year as a senior for the Trojans, but he injured his knee in a pre-draft camp and never appeared in an NBA game.
