Knee injury knocks incoming USC WR Steven Mitchell out for season
Southern California incoming freshman Steven Mitchell, a wide receiver, hurt his knee Friday and is out for the season.
UPDATE: USC has confirmed that Mitchell is out for the season after tearing ligaments in his right knee.
USC's NCAA-induced roster limitations might have taken another hit this week as multiple reports are indicating that incoming freshman wide receiver Steven Mitchell suffered a serious knee injury during voluntary summer workouts on Friday.
According to the reports, Mitchell hurt his right knee when it got caught in field turf during a passing drill. His high school coach later told Eric Sondheimer of the Los Angeles Times that Mitchell would be undergoing an MRI.
The four-star receiver out of Alemany High in Mission Hills, Calif., was expected to challenge for playing time for the Trojans as a true freshman. Outside of Marqise Lee and Nelson Agholor, no other returning wideouts caught more than one pass for USC last season. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound freshman with shifty open-field moves might have made his mark as a slot receiver and in the return game.
