Chris Steele has lofty goals for what he believes will be his final season at USC, and he’s happy to recite them for you, one by one. The junior cornerback wants to be known as one of the best cover men in the nation. He wants to be a unanimous All-American and a top NFL draft pick next spring. And in the process, he hopes to reel in at least five interceptions next fall, a total just two Trojans have matched over the past decade.
As Steele tightens his hold on the Trojans’ top corner spot this spring, those high hopes rest, quite literally, in his hands.
