Kedon Slovis gets positive player rating ahead of 2022
Another former USC Trojan quarterback has received some recognition ahead of the 2022 college football season.
247 Sports’ Brad Crawford dropped his ranking of the top 25 quarterbacks for the 2022 campaign, and the three of Jaxson Dart, Kedon Slovis and new Trojan QB Caleb Williams made the list.
Williams is No. 3 on the list and Dart cracked the top 20 to the surprise of many. Not too far behind Dart is Slovis, who was the Trojans’ starting QB in 2021 before getting injured. After that, Dart and Slovis died out when interim head coach Donte Williams played the two guys.
Nevertheless, Slovis received some recognition. Here’s what Crawford had to say about Kenny Pickett’s replacement:
Certainly, the weapons surrounding the quarterbacks are important in terms of the projected production element of this ranking and Slovis losing Biletnikoff winner Jordan Addison to USC in the transfer gate is brutal.
Things looked a lot more promising for Slovis ahead of all the Jordan Addison drama. Then Addison chose USC over Texas and sent the Trojans even higher in the standings ahead of the 2022 campaign.
So, Slovis heads to Pitt, Addison joins USC, and Dart and tight end Michael Trigg will play Ole Miss.
Times are changing rapidly, and we haven’t even mentioned former Trojan QB JT Daniels, who will adapt to West Virginia and have Graham Harrell as his offensive coordinator.
