USC running back Dillon Baxter had a very good practice Monday -- coming on the heels of a meeting between Baxter, his family and coach Lane Kiffin Sunday. Kiffin said that Baxter "practiced as hard today as he has since he's been here."
Baxter was a big-time recruit, but has fallen behind Curtis McNeal and D.J. Morgan in the running back derby and with Marc Tyler back in the picture -- who knows. Baxter got one touch in Saturday's win over Minnesota, prompting the conference with the family.
