But he's an athlete from BFE who got a shot at SEC football because he could play decent to good baseball if memory serves me right. Someone correct me on that please. Guy needs a reality check. With Wilds out he's gotten his shot.
This is indeed his shot, but he's had some setbacks along the way. He was going to get to play his first year hear, but hurt his knee against uga and lost the season. Then he got hurt in camp last year and lost the season ( I think it was something on his wrist or arm.)
He was actually both a highly sought after FB and BB recruit. he was an Under Armor All American selection for baseball, and he had many offers. Rivals had him as a 4star RB recruit rated nationally in the 20's for the position. He was All State at both his baseball and football positions.
I myself thought he was going to come in and be a Jeff Demps kinda guy, he ran an electronic timed 4.28 at a Rivals camp, so I always pictured him as our 3rd down and long RB, or better.
Though his injuries obviously impacted his career here at USC, the other talent we have at the RB position has impacted it just as much. Wilds got a bunch of PT 2 years ago, so he became a known asset. He's also bigger than Carson and has the body that can take more hits. Then you add on Davis who is a complete RB, and you can see why Carson was 3rd string coming into the season.
Now it's his chance. The coaches today will play David and Shon, probably see who does better and that guy will get more carries as long as Wilds is out.
