It didn't taken long for Sandy Fletcher to make an impression on the USC coaching staff. Despite not having played basketball in nearly a year, Fletcher--a redshirt freshman football safety who joined the basketball team last week--was the player Coach Henry Bibby called on when point guard Brandon Granville was in foul trouble early in the second half of the San Diego State game. Fletcher played five minutes, made two free throws and got a rebound.

Dropped passes by receivers hurt USC last week against Kansas State. On Thursday, the Trojan receiving corps was hurting for healthy bodies. Wide receivers Kareem Kelly and Mike Williams are at full strength, and flanker Keary Colbert is fit enough for Saturday's Pacific 10 Conference opener against No. 23 Oregon State. But Jason Mitchell, who might have a stress fracture in his back, will not play. And Grant Mattos, who strained an abdominal muscle, is doubtful.

But not all stories are unhappy ones. Martha Carter of South-Central took on the parenting of Sandy Fletcher, her grandson, when he was 2.

It's unknown how much freshman Sandy Fletcher, who played safety on USC's football team, will be able to help the basketball team other than provide another 6-foot-3, 185-pound practice body when he joins the team today or Tuesday. But Fletcher, 18, is not just another athlete trying to play more than one college sport. He does have basketball credentials.

USC is coming off a bye week. Tampa Bay Buccaneer wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson is just beginning one. So Johnson stopped by Howard Jones Field on Monday, watched the final 30 minutes of a practice that lasted a bit more than an hour and addressed the team afterward at the behest of Coach Pete Carroll. USC, ranked 10th in the Associated Press poll, moved up to No. 9 in the BCS rankings earlier in the day.

In August, Fred Matua was on his way to becoming the first freshman in six years to start an opener on the offensive line for USC. On Tuesday, Matua and Coach Pete Carroll said he was instead on track to redshirt. Matua, who has been hobbled because of a bruised right knee suffered on Aug. 29, will not play Saturday against No. 17 Washington State and will sit out the rest of the season if he is not able to return for the Oct. 12 game against California, Carroll said.

With two weeks remaining before the Las Vegas Bowl on Christmas Day, Coach Pete Carroll wanted to spice up the practice routine, so he put his team through more than 50 plays of full-speed hitting Sunday. And the defense, which had taken a beating against the offense earlier in the week, used the opportunity to flex its muscle. On the first play, cornerback Antuan Simmons leaped to knock a pass away from receiver Kareem Kelly.

Former USC defensive back Will Poole pleaded no contest last month to driving under the influence of alcohol -- the third member of USC's 2003 national championship team to face criminal charges since the season ended. Poole, 22, was arrested in Los Angeles on Feb. 25 at 3:15 a.m. after the car he was driving hit a sand-filled barrier near Mission Road and Richmond Street, Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the city attorney's office, said Wednesday.
