USC QB Matt Barkley will miss the Senior Bowl, his college playing days are over.

USC quarterback Matt Barkley will forgo the Senior Bowl as he is still recovering from an AC sprain to his right throwing shoulder suffered in a 38-28 loss to UCLA back on November 17th.  Barkley returned to USC for his senior season with high hopes of leading the Trojans to a national title while picking up the Heisman along the way.  Unfortunately, none of this happened.

USC finished unranked at 7-6 capped by an embarrassing loss to Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl.  As a Trojan, Barkley threw for 12,327 yards, 116 TDs and 48 INTs.  The Newport Beach native is poised to be a top ten selection and is expected to be one of the first quarterbacks taken in the NFL draft.
