This is some great news for the program...
Four USC Trojans -- quarterback Matt Barkley, center Khaled Holmes, defensive end Devon Kennard and safety Drew McAllister were named to the Pac-12's annual All-Academic team on Thursday, earning second-team honors.
Barkley and Holmes were each listed as having 3.22 GPAs in USC's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, although Holmes has already begun work on his master's degree in communication management in his fourth year at the school. Kennard has a 3.20 GPA, also in communication.
McAllister, a backup safety who has started one game for the Trojans this season, has a 3.12 GPA as a public policy major.
