LOS ANGELES — For USC Trojans third-year starting inside linebacker Anthony Sarao, this offseason will be especially meaningful because it will be his last.
The 6-foot, 220-pound New Jersey native with the long-flowing hair came to the City of Angels in 2011, and he’d be the first to tell you that a collegiate athletic career can fly by as fast as an electrifying Adoree’ Jackson kickoff return.
“When I first got here, the old guys told me to let in all sink in because it’s really going to go fast,” said Sarao, a fifth-year senior, who was held out of the Trojans’ recently concluded 15 days of spring practice in order to let a foot injury heal properly. “It all sounds all so cliché but they never lied. It went so fast and it’s already here.”
