Ex-USC Star WR Steve Smith: Sam Darnold Blew Heisman Shot, But …

Ex-USC Star Steve Smith Sam Darnold Blew Heisman Shot … But He’ll Be a Great Pro!


There’s USC bias … and then there’s keeping it real. 

Ex-Trojans WR Steve Smith went with the latter when we asked about Sam Darnold‘s Heisman chances.  

Smith was a BEAST at SC back in the day — he famously caught 3 TDs from Matt Leinart in the 2005 BCS National Championship game (a victory that was later vacated). 

So, we had to ask about the current State of Troy … and even though he ruled out a Heisman for Sam Darnold, Smith still thinks the QB will be a stud in the NFL. 

Remember, Steve won a Super Bowl with the NY Giants back in 2008 — and makes it clear he would LOVE to see Sam play for the G-Men.

And how does he feel about his old teammate Reggie Bush, the guy responsible for wiping the BCS title off the books? Hint: there’s definitely no hard feelings.
