Former USC running back Reggie Bush is arguably the greatest player in Trojan history. He is the last person to win the Heisman Trophy and the third to win it in a matter of four years.
Despite what happened off the field, Bush will always be remembered for what he did during his time in Pasadena. The Trojans have another dynamic player in wide receiver Adoree’ Jackson and head coach Steve Sarkisian certainly knows it.
According to Michael Lev of the Orange County Register, Sarkisian made a subtle comparison of Jackson to Bush. He didn’t outright say Bush’s name, but it was pretty clear who he was talking about.

Of course, Sarkisian was referencing the time Bush had to vacate the 2005 Heisman Trophy and cost the Trojans wins during his time there after it was revealed that he accepted illegal benefits while being recruited. Honestly, I think people have let that whole situation go and if they haven’t, they need to.
Bush is, and always will be, remembered as one of the greatest Trojans in team history. That’s a pretty big name for Jackson to live up to.
