  Another key cog in USC's defense is off to the NFL. After establishing himself as a force on the interior of USC's defensive line during its shortened season, Marlon Tuipulotu declared for the draft on Friday, becoming the fourth Trojan in the last week to announce that he was leaving for the NFL. Tuipulotu's exit was widely expected after a stellar season in which he tallied 23 tackles, 3½ for loss, and two sacks as the Trojans starting nose tackle. But his departure leaves a sizable hole in the middle of USC's defensive line, one that the Trojans could have trouble replacing next season. - Los Angeles Times

  Southern California defensive lineman Marlon Tuipulotu and cornerback Olaijah Griffin are headed to the NFL draft. The two key defensive starters for the 21st-ranked Trojans announced their intentions Friday. USC already had lost All-America safety Talanoa Hufanga and offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker, who declared their plans last month.

Tuipulotu was a three-year starter for the Trojans, making 8 1/2 sacks and 104 total tackles. He made the All-Pac-12 first team this season with two sacks and 23 tackles, filling an important role after star lineman Jay Tufele opted out of the season to prepare for the NFL. Griffin was the Trojans' top cornerback this season, drawing coverage assignments against the Pac-12's top receivers. The son of rapper Warren G had 22 tackles and his first career interception. - AP College Football

  2020 ALL-PAC-12 CONFERENCE FIRST TEAM: DL Marlon Tuipulotu, Jr., USC,...Tuipulotu, a junior who started for his third season, notched 23 tackles from his nose tackle spot in 2020. He had 3.5 tackles for a loss, including 2 sacks, and also forced a fumble. - Southern California Football

  It all starts with Marlon Tuipulotu. The junior tackle entered the year with 23 games as a starter, and had always been a steady presence in the middle of the line. This season, Tuipulotu has elevated his game. He had eight tackles in each of the first two games and has been causing problems for opposing offenses in the backfield, with 3.5 tackles for loss and two sacks. One of those sacks resulted in a fumble recovered by the Trojans on the goal line, while the other was on third down and forced a punt.

Tuipulotu's play has led head coach Clay Helton to pose the question of whether the junior is the best defensive lineman in the Pac-12 right now. So'oto says he's seen Tuipulotu take a jump when it comes to his understanding of the game. "A guy that's constantly hungry for knowledge of defensive line play. 'What can I do better?" So'oto described. "I think to me it's more the types of questions he's asking. It's no longer about, 'Which way am I going?' It's more about, 'OK, now I know what to do, now how am I going to get in the best position to make the play?" - Orange County Register

  Marlon Tuipulotu continued his monster season in the first half of USC's game against Utah Saturday night. On first-and-10 from the Utah 15 early in the second quarter, the senior defensive tackle shoved aside his blocker, got past the man and swallowed up Utah quarterback Cameron Rising. Tuipulotu punched the football loose, and defensive lineman Connor Murphy jumped on it at the Utah 4. The turnover led to a Vavae Malepeai touchdown run two plays later, the senior running back's second score of the season.

Tuipulotu has stepped up in a big way since fellow defensive tackle Jay Tufele opted out to prepare for the NFL Draft. Tuipulotu had eight tackles in each of the first two games this season, leading the Trojans in the category through two weeks. His strip sack on Saturday was one of three forced turnovers by the Trojans in the first half. Outside linebacker Drake Jackson intercepted a pass in the first quarter, then safety Isaiah Pola-Mao jumped on a botched hand-off to give USC its second fumble recovery. - Orange County Register
