USC sophomore S Su'a Cravens "doesn't have the man cover skills to match up with quicker slot receivers, but his length and instincts help mask his lack of ideal fluidity," wrote Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl.
"At 6-1 and 225 pounds, Cravens is a hybrid safety/linebacker who frequently lines up close to the line of scrimmage where he uses his hands to keep bigger blockers off his frame as a run-defender," they wrote. "He also shows good closing speed in rushing the quarterback, as he displayed against Utah." Cravens has attractive physical tools, but, as Muench and Weidl note, his game has deficiencies and he's struggled to stay healthy over the past few years. Fortunately, he has two seasons of eligibility remaining to answer lingering questions. Dec 19 - 11:41 PM

USC HC Steve Sarkisian said that the team was "going to do everything in [its] power sophomore" to help sophomore S Su'a Cravens return from his knee injury.

Sarkisian said that Cravens was trying to "get as healthy as he can get for next Thursday night." Sarkisian shed a little light on the degree of Cravens' injury when he told reporters that an MRI had shown that the safety had not suffered any structural damage in the knee. "He's sore, obviously," said the coach. The Trojans play Cal on November 13 and are hopeful they'll get their defensive rock back by then.

USC sophomore S Su'a Cravens did not suffer structural damage to his injured right knee.

USC has an off week followed by a Thursday night game against Cal, and it is unclear if the emerging safety will be available. Outside of defensive lineman Leonard Williams, Cravens might be the most impressive player on USC's defense.

USC freshman S Su'a Cravens believes interim head coach Ed Orgeron should be name the school's head coach moving forward.

"He knows SC," Cravens said. "He represents SC... Coach O has always been a fiery guy. We are proud to play for coach O." This seems to be the consensus around the locker room, at least in what they are telling the media. AD Pat Haden will have a difficult time not keeping Orgeron if the school beats UCLA on Nov. 30.

USC freshman S Su'a Cravens was carted off the field following an interception against Utah.

Cravens, as a freshman, might be one of the Trojans' top two defenders. One update said Cravens sustained a pulled groin, so the initial prognosis could have been much worse. Dion Bailey, who was not expected to play in this game, was seen warming up at halftime since the Trojans have so many injuries on defense.
