    What They're Saying

    CAREER: He has 22 career starts.

    2015: Wheeler hopes to bounce back from a 2014 knee injury and resume his starting role at left offensive tackle as a junior in 2015. He sat out 2015 spring practice while recovering from that knee injury.

    2014: Wheeler started USC's first 8 games at left offensive tackle as a sophomore in 2014, but he tore ligaments in his right knee at Utah (although he played a full series with the injury) and missed the final 5 games. He won USC's Bob Chandler Award (athletics/academics/character).

    2013: Wheeler started all season at left offensive tackle as a redshirt freshman in 2013 and did an admirable job. He also was used on some special teams and blocked a field goal against Stanford. He made 2013 Athlon Freshman All-American third team and CollegeFootballNews.com Freshman All-American honorable mention. He was USC's Co-Lifter of the Year.

    2012: Wheeler, who enrolled at USC in the spring of 2012 after graduating a semester early from high school, redshirted as a freshman offensive tackle in 2012. He missed most of 2013 spring practice with a knee injury.

    HIGH SCHOOL: He missed part of his 2011 senior year with a shoulder injury that required surgery at Santa Monica (Calif.) High while playing both offensive tackle and defensive end, but earned Super Prep All-Farwest and Prep Star All-West.

    He made 38 tackles (with 5 sacks) and 2 deflections on defense as a 2010 junior.

    PERSONAL: He is a sociology major at USC.
