Despite allowing 25.8 points per game and at least 20 in every game, USC’s defense has had its fair share of individual standouts this season. Junior Rasheem Green is high on that list for the work he’s doing disrupting things from his defensive tackle position.

The 6’4”, 275-pound Green has 2.5 sacks and four tackles for loss along with 23 tackles in five games. He’s broken up three passes and been credited with three quarterback hurries, but a closer look at his effort shows he’s made things difficult for opposing QBs.
Green had 1.5 sacks in Friday night’s loss at Washington State, the second time in his career he’s been involved in more than one QB takedown behind the line.
While many other USC players have missed time this season because of injury, Green has managed to stay healthy by starting the Trojans’ last 17 games. He was banged up late against WSU but Trojans coach Clay Helton hasn’t provided any updates on his status for this week’s game against Oregon State.
