Shaun Cody knew some by reputation. He met others during their recruiting trips to USC and summer workouts. Cody, however, did not comprehend the talent and depth of the Trojans' most recent recruiting class until the defending national champions gathered for their first full-squad workout earlier this month. "It's almost like they're starting a dynasty with the way they recruit," said Cody, a senior defensive lineman and preseason All-American.

USC quarterback Matt Leinart and running back Reggie Bush were chosen Pacific 10 Conference offensive co-players of the year, and lineman Shaun Cody was selected as co-defensive player of the year, the league announced Monday. Four other USC players and two UCLA players were first-team selections. Cody shared his award -- named for the late Pat Tillman -- with Oregon State lineman Bill Swancutt, the only unanimous selection by coaches.

Switching positions is tough enough. Shaun Cody faces the added challenge of being a 265-pound defensive end shifted inside as a tackle. "Now I'm mixing it up with the big guys, the double-teams," he said. The USC freshman made the change last week and recorded three tackles as a backup against Stanford. Now, because of a shoulder injury to Ryan Nielsen, he will get his first start at Washington against a Husky offensive line that averages 311 pounds. "It doesn't bother me one bit," he said.

USC defensive lineman Shaun Cody was chosen Tuesday as one of four finalists for the Lombardi Award, presented to the nation's top lineman.

Defensive tackle Shaun Cody suffered what was diagnosed as a slight knee sprain during drills Saturday, but it sent a major shiver across the practice field. "You feel that quick pain and you get real scared," he said. Coach Pete Carroll was equally worried he might lose the freshman who has turned into a defensive stalwart. Cody, who stayed on the sideline with ice on his knee, was scheduled to receive therapy this morning and test the injury on the field.

Shaun Cody got what he wanted when he moved from defensive tackle to end last week against Brigham Young. Free of the double-team schemes he encountered inside, Cody helped USC to victory and was credited with a career-best three sacks. Cody, however, will start at tackle today against Stanford because Manuel Wright struggled as a starter at tackle against BYU. Redshirt freshman Lawrence Jackson returns to the starting lineup at end. "It was fun while it lasted," Cody said of starting at end.

USC suffered a major blow Tuesday when defensive tackle Shaun Cody learned that he will be out the rest of the season because of a torn ligament in his left knee that requires surgery. Cody, a 6-foot-4, 275-pound sophomore, was injured in the second quarter of the No. 19 Trojans' 30-28 victory over California last Saturday. He had an MRI exam Monday night and hoped the test would reveal only a bad sprain. Instead, it showed a damaged anterior cruciate ligament.

During spring practice, USC coaches moved senior Shaun Cody from tackle to end to fill the spot vacated by All-American Kenechi Udeze. Lawrence Jackson, a 6-foot-5, 275-pound redshirt freshman end from Inglewood, has apparently caused a change of plan. Jackson impressed during the spring and through the first two weeks of training camp, allowing Coach Pete Carroll and defensive line coach Ed Orgeron to reconsider how they will use the versatile Cody, a preseason All-American.

Most of the attention during USC's spring practice has been focused on an offensive line that will feature four new starters. But the defensive line also is undergoing change. On Friday, junior end Frostee Rucker did not practice because of a nagging toe injury that was sustained during the Rose Bowl and was aggravated Thursday. Rucker is scheduled to see a specialist Monday and could sit out the rest of spring practice, which concludes April 10.
