USC Trojans Fall Practice: Marqise Lee Breaking Out?

The USC Trojans have had so many talented athletes that it's not a surprise that they start showcasing their abilities early. Amir Carlisle has already shown flashes of the type of player he could be for the Men of Troy this fall camp. Robert Woods emerged to prominence last season in fall camp and earned Pac-10 Freshman of the Year honors. And now Woods's teammate in high school could be next in line for earning well-deserved lauds. Pedro Moura of ESPN Los Angeles has more.

The Gardena Serra High product put on display his well-established connection with quarterback Matt Barkley in the 2 1/2-hour night session, catching a number of balls and dropping none. Trojans coach Lane Kiffin made a point of praising him afterward, as he often has in the first two weeks of USC's fall camp.

"He was the star of the practice by far, with nobody even close to him," Kiffin said. "He continued to make a ton of plays."

Currently it's Woods and Brandon Carswell slated at the top two positions in the USC rotation, with a logjam emerging for that crucial third spot on the field. However, Kiffin is hardly shy of spreading the field with USC receivers and making them all run various routes on the field, and it figures that Lee will get his chances with the second unit.
