Cornerback Devian Shelton, offensive tackle Zach Banner and defensive end Greg Townsend Jr. won't play for the Trojans this year, coach Lane Kiffin said after practice Thursday night.
The 6-foot-9 Banner will need hip surgery, Kiffin says. The freshman redshirted last season and joined the men's basketball team, although he didn't play.
Townsend was a backup defensive end last season as a redshirt freshman. He needs surgery on his knee.
Shelton is a freshman who redshirted last season. He needs foot surgery.
USC (3-1) is traveling to Arizona State with just 56 recruited scholarship players.
Tailback Silas Redd is traveling. He hasn't played this year with a knee injury.
