The first phone call Rocky Hinds received on a night that otherwise might have been one of the most disappointing of his life was the last one he expected. USC football Coach Pete Carroll was on the line telling Hinds not to worry, that the Trojans weren't going to give up on him.

Rocky Hinds has all the natural ability and physical tools a high school quarterback could ask for, but the photograph taped inside his locker reminds him that nothing comes easy. At 6-foot-5, 220 pounds and with enough speed to win a Southern Section 100-meter division track title last spring, Hinds could coast through his senior season at Playa del Rey St. Bernard and still be one of the top quarterback recruits in the Southland.

In less than a year, Rocky Hinds has gone from the Nevada Las Vegas quarterback of the future to quarterback of the present. Hinds, a sophomore who transferred from USC a year ago, was named the Rebels' starter Monday, beating out senior Shane Steichen. Hinds hasn't played the last three seasons. He was injured in his senior season of high school, redshirted as a USC freshman and sat out last year under NCAA transfer rules.

USC quarterback Matt Leinart threw footballs for the first time since January elbow surgery and reported no pain, his father, Bob, said Wednesday.

He was ready to go." * Running back Chauncey Washington, who was recently deemed academically ineligible for the second consecutive season, is considering a transfer but has not asked USC for his release, Coach Pete Carroll said.

USC baseball Coach Mike Gillespie again must cross his fingers and hope the top high school players who have committed to the Trojans will choose college over the pros. His latest commitment is power-hitting first baseman Lucas Duda of Riverside Arlington. He joins top pro prospect Trevor Plouffe, a pitcher from Encino Crespi, and infielders Matt Cusick and Doug Reinhardt of Santa Margarita, all of whom plan to sign with USC in November.

Miami is out of the rankings for the first time since 1999, and Auburn is the new No. 2 in the Associated Press Top 25. The Hurricanes' latest loss -- a 31-7 debacle at Louisville -- ended a streak of 107 consecutive poll appearances that was the nation's longest current streak. "That doesn't really change anything," Miami Coach Larry Coker said Sunday. "The poll didn't help us yesterday, and the poll won't help us tomorrow. Doesn't change anything." Ohio State remained No.
