Barkley to Start

Los Angeles, CA - Freshman Matt Barkley has been named No. 4 Southern California's starting quarterback.

Coach Pete Carroll unexpectedly announced his decision Thursday, several hours before practice and two days before USC's mock game.
Barkley was perhaps the nation's most sought football recruit last year. The Orange County native graduated from high school one semester early to participate in spring practice at USC.

Sophomore Aaron Corp was named the Trojans' starter out of spring ball, but Barkley took advantage when Corp missed two weeks of workouts after breaking a small bone below his left knee Aug. 10.
Barkley is thought to be the first non-redshirt freshman quarterback to be picked to start a season opener for the Trojans.
