I posted this in another thread but it deserves its own thread. Thanks pedro. This is very sad, only 21 years old. As I stated in the other thread, this is the second player USC has lost in the past eight months. Last May, Ryan Francis, a freshman PG on the basketball team, was shot and killed while visiting family back home in Louisiana. Three summers ago USC lost Drean Rucker, one of the top LB recruits in the country in a boating accident. On top of that, former Trojans Darrell Russell and Michael Bastianelli died tragically in a car crash last December. It's been a rough three or four years for the USC program.
