USC’s 2020 recruiting class might’ve been small, but it brought in a significant amount of new blood at a vital position: offensive line.

The Trojans signed six offensive linemen in last year’s cycle, six prospects from around the country: Courtland Ford (Texas), Jonah Monheim (SoCal), Casey Collier (Texas), Andres Dewerk (NorCal), Andrew Milek (Arizona) and Caadyn Stephen (Washington). The last couple of days have been the first glimpses of the new additions, which all enrolled with the team this summer.

USC head coach Clay Helton noted that it’s been a “logistical nightmare” with the team spread out among four different fields to meet the new cohort restrictions, but it’s allowed the young offensive line class to participate more in practice. It’s no surprise that the group’s two highest rated prospects have jumped out early.

“But the silver lining in it is really getting to two-spot a lot of our team activity, which is getting those young kids reps and tape for us to evaluate, as well as coach off of. So that’s kind of been the silver lining. The kids that’ve jumped out to me right off the bat are Jonah Monheim and Courtland Ford, they’ve shown a good physical maturity right off the bat and being able to pick things up,” said Helton on Monday.
