Update: USC is not going to wear the prototypes this year. The helmets are from last year, which USC decided not to wear.
Bro Bible uncovered these USC matte black helmets via a tipster. The red shiny helmets shown in the photograph is also a prototype with a black face mask in lieu of the current gray one. These girls are supposedly student-assistants to USC’s equipment manager and they posted these images to Instagram.
It’s unclear if these are going to be worn by Southern Cal. Maybe they’re just a prototype, but they certainly are a cool look. If these are truly leaked secret Nike helmets, then these girls should have disguised themselves a little better.
