USC FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK: RIVERS AND BAKER HONORED.
USC offensive lineman Sam Baker and linebacker Keith Rivers were named to the Playboy All-America team.
Baker is a repeat selection and first USC lineman to earn consecutive honors since offensive tackle Tony Boselli was a three-time selection (1992-94).
"It's really a cool thing to get that recognition," Baker said. "It's a really hectic weekend but it's a lot of fun."
Baker and Rivers will join the rest of the All-America team in Arizona next month to take a team picture although Baker will arrive late because he is graduating from USC.
"Last year, I met guys that I was going to play against," Baker said. "That part was really cool."
Rivers is the first USC linebacker to make the Playboy team since Marcus Cotton in 1987.
Mustain update: Arkansas quarterback Mitch Mustain visited USC over the weekend but did not provide the Trojans with a commitment. Mustain, who is considering USC and Tulsa, is not expected to announce a decision until after he completes classes at Arkansas.
