A promising recruit has a long road ahead if he’s going to make any type of contribution in the coming season.
It had previously been confirmed by USC that Trevon Sidney would not participate in spring practice because of hip surgery. What hadn’t been previously confirmed is that, according to the Los Angeles Daily News, Sidney actually underwent surgery on both hips.
The Daily News writes that head coach “Clay Helton said he hopes Sidney can return in the fall.” It appears, though, that the wide receiver’s availability for the upcoming season is, at bare minimum, significantly in doubt.
Sidney was a four-star member of the Trojans’ 2016 recruiting class. He was rated by 247Sports.com as the No. 26 receiver in the country; the No. 20 player at any position in the state of California; and the No. 141 player overall in that recruiting website’s composite rankings.
As a true freshman, Sidney took a redshirt.
