Booty 2 Hazelton

According to USC Sports Talk's latest poll, the leading receiver for the upcoming season will be Vidal Hazelton. Hazelton played in 11 games last season, recording only 1 reception for 8 yards. With the dynamic duo of Steve Smith and Dwayne Jarrett on the field, Hazelton got very little playing time his freshman year. Hazelton looks to receive a lot more playing time and footballs as he competes for the starting receiver spot opposite junior Patrick Turner.

Hazelton had a great spring, displaying excellent hands and agility, and has positioned himself as the man-to-beat for playing time. He managed to hold off talented sophomores Travon Patterson and David Ausberry to finish the spring #2 on the depth chart. Nothing is set in stone and Hazelton will have to work hard this fall to hold off the competition, including incoming freshman Ronald Johnson.

Here are the complete results...

Vidal Hazelton (39%)

Patrick Turner (35%)

David Ausberry (12%)

Joe McKnight (5%)

Travon Patterson (4%)

Ronald Johnson (3%)

Jamere Holland (2%)

Fred Davis

Brandon Carswell

Good luck to all the receivers. The competition this fall should be great.
