Los Angeles — With USC spring football practice looming, there is one position that could affect the way the entire defense performs, or perhaps you’ve forgotten that former All-America defensive lineman Leonard “Big Cat” Williams has left his cardinal and gold gridiron lair.
In case you were wondering what has become of old No. 94, Williams was busy last week wowing the NFL scouts to the point where one expert proclaimed Williams “Hall of Fame material” while another called him a “once in a generation player.”
So what happens to a Trojans defense when the possible No. 1 overall NFL draft pick leaves after his junior season to play professionally? Well, if you’re a USC fan, you start sweating bullets or at the very least clutching and manipulating your favorite religious symbol or beads.
