"Fortunately for the Trojans, it's not a matter of talent at defensive tackle, but the inexperience at the position that causes a hindrance. Bigelow's main competition for the position were blue-chippers in sophomores Rasheem Green and Noah Jefferson. Both served as backups in their appearances last season as true freshmen, however, Green a five-star recruit coming out of Junipero Serra last season might have the inside track given his high recruit capital.
Jefferson's mammoth 6'6" 330 lbs. frame would be an ideal fit for the nose tackle under defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast's 5-2 defense, while the highly-athletic, 6'5" 285 lbs. Green would give the line a jolt at defensive end.
With a nose tackle over center, two defensive ends and two more hybrid ends on the line, this defensive scheme calls for a lot depth -- something the Trojans are, as of now, short on."
