Small skirmish between Xavier Melton (DL) and a couple offensive players (mostly Andrew Phillips and Khary Franklin), after Melton got a little ruff during drills. Cooler heads prevailed, and the players shook hands.

Chip Reeves showed that he still had great speed. He and quarterback Corey Robinson hooked up a couple of big deep ball routes.

USC transfer TJ Bryant was beat a couple of times on routes, he told The Messenger’s Wes Johnson that he was “getting his feet wet” today.

Corey Robinson handled the majority of the place holding duties, though Jaquon Robinson was at practice.

Lots of number changes including Jaquon Robinson swapping 83 for 2, and Chandler Worthy changing 89 for 16.
