Southern Miss football annual spring game set for Saturday

The Southern Miss football program is in the midst of a steady influx of new three-star recruits as a part of Will Hall’s first signing day as head coach.

For the ones on campus early, they’re already on the verge of being done with their first spring at USM.

With Saturday’s spring game right around the corner, Coach Hall says when it comes to the depth chart and age being a factor, no one is grandfathered in. “We’re always about competition here. That’s our fourth core value is always compete, so everybody is going to be given a chance. Ty Keyes is going to be given a chance to compete for the starting job at quarterback. Well, if we’ll do it at quarterback, we’ll do it everywhere. We feel like we signed a great group of young guys. We’re going to get them in here in the summer and start teaching them our language, and we’re going to be putting them in positions where they can compete and grow in those roles. So yeah, we’re bringing every one of them in here to play. The best players are going to play at Southern Miss as long as I’m the head coach here, no matter how old he is.”

Saturday’s spring game kicks off at 9:30 a.m. at MM Roberts Stadium as a part of Golden Eagle Super Saturday.
