LOS ANGELES (AP) -Coach Pete Carroll usually keeps Southern California's freshmen out of the spotlight for the first week of fall camp, barring them from interviews to allow them to concentrate on practice and drills.
As Matt Barkley demonstrated in the Trojans' opening workout of camp Saturday, he's an unusual freshman.
The highly touted quarterback prospect from Orange County looked sharp in USC's first workout since spring ball, holding his own with first-stringer Aaron Corp and seasoned backup Mitch Mustain in a vigorous set of throwing drills. Although Corp won the starting job out of spring, Carroll acknowledges things could change in the four weeks leading up to the Trojans' season opener.
