Missed this earlier in the week. Per the LAT:
James Boyd is a 6-foot-4, 245-pound redshirt freshman backup defensive end for the USC football team.
But Monday, Boyd was at men's basketball practice, where he said he'll be more often when football season ends as he plans to walk on to the Trojans hoops team.
Boyd said he might be able to practice with the basketball team as soon as this week -- he said he's just waiting for football Coach Lane Kiffin to give him the all clear -- but that he should definitely be with the team after the football team's season ends against UCLA on Dec. 4.
Boyd, who was a four-sport star at L.A. Jordan High, was named to the All-L.A. City team as a senior when he averaged 23.8 points and 22.4 rebounds for the basketball team.
If and when Boyd joins the basketball team, he should be able to bolster a thin front-line.
"I know my role," he said. "I know what I can do."
