USC football added some extra depth to its offensive line on Thursday night. Tackle Cooper Lovelace committed to the Trojans with three years of eligibility remaining.

Lovelace was one of the top JUCO linemen on the market after spending his first two years at Butler Community College in Kansas. He chose to play for head coach Lincoln Riley over offers from Florida, Iowa State, Kansas, Oklahoma State, and others.

As for his playing style, Lovelace is a big dude who likes to get his hands on defenders and shake them around.

“I play violent football, that’s the best way to put it. And there’s nothing I want to do more than win,” he told USCfootball.com.

Here are the highlights from Cooper Lovelace’s final season on the JUCO level before committing to USC:

Lovelace is particularly interesting because he is new to the sport. He has only played three years of football— two on the JUCO level and one in high school.

Today, he stands 6-foot-5, 320 pounds. Lovelace has experience playing both tackle and guard, so he provides much-needed flexibility for an offensive line in Los Angeles that has a need for depth and the ability for players to step up and fill holes as the season goes on.

Lovelace provides that. Once he gets on a D-1 weight and strength training plan, he will likely play closer to 325 pounds of muscle and has three seasons to develop into a bonafide starter.

By landing Lovelace’s commitment, USC can now boast that it has the most flexible big man in college football. Despite being the size that he is, Lovelace’s ability to bend and move would be unbelievable if he didn’t have video to back it up.

While the Trojans seek to turn the corner toward consistent national relevance in 2022, they got a good one in Lovelace. For him to be that flexible is truly mind-blowing.
