"It's what I played last year. It's just back to what I did. It's nothing different. I can play all the positions; I just have to switch modes " Williams said. "We'll be OK. We still got great guys like David Ausberry and Brice Butler. We've got a lot of guys who can fill in. We'll keep pushing. We'll definitely miss him, though. We'll need him out there."
Butler has been surging late in fall camp, and he could become USC's No. 3 receiver with Johnson out.
"I add crisp routes. I've got good speed, deceptive speed, because my legs are long and sure hands. I'm going to catch everything that comes. I feel like the route game is especially the biggest," Butler said. "I feel like my fall camp has been really consistent especially because my spring was horrible. I feel like I've done really well this fall."
After Johnson's injury on Saturday, Carroll made sure the USC quarterbacks began to look for Butler and true freshman De'Von Flournoy often in an effort to get more information on the two.
"Brice has had a great camp. He can really catch the football and he runs terrific routes. He's done a really good job all camp long. He's made good statements all the way a long about what he can add," Carroll said. "Flournoy has been special at times. You can see when he gets the ball in his hands. He's got really good quickness and explosiveness."
