Ghost Notes Report: USC football returns to Howard Jones Field on Day 17 of fall camp (Final Edition)
Here is the Ghost Notes practice report from Day 17 of USC Fall Camp 2023. Here I will provide notes, insights and thoughts from throughout the day's practice. Media are only allowed to observe the opening stretching portion and individual drills. We are allowed to talk to players and coaches after practice, so notes will be added after the initial post.
- There are always certain check points as the season opener approaches: first day of fall camp, first day of full pads, first day freshmen can talk to media, first scrimmage, etc. Today was one of those check points: move-in day. The most chaotic day of the summer is here as our normal parking lot is so full some of us are forced to park in the Jefferson garage. This gives me flashbacks to the 2021 season with COVID checks and Instant Analysis on top of the parking garage.
- The Jefferson parking situation means we have a great view of Dedeaux Field, which is occupied today by the USC Marching Band. Some quick hitter notes:
- Five-star tuba signee Wyatt Chase looks as advertised. Working with the second unit. I see freshman All-American in his future. Great to see Daisy Armstong back with the first-team flag twirler unit after missing spring camp with bunion surgery. She is poised to build off last season's breakout.
- More notes: Fans should be worried about the drum line size. Not getting that third percussion drum out of the portal might hurt down the line. The saxophones are as fast as advertised. You can't teach the note speed they have. The flutes look like they were living in the weight room this offseason. Eating THICK. The trumpets are young, but potential to be among the best in the Pac-12 this season.
