    2014: Townsend will battle for playing time on the defensive line as a junior in 2014 once he is recovered from a 2013 knee and ankle injury. He likely will see limited action during 2014 spring practice while recovering from those injuries.

    2013: Townsend was set to compete for playing time at defensive end as a sophomore in 2013, but he suffered a knee and ankle injury in 2013 fall camp and sat out the 2013 season. He was slowed in 2013 spring practice while recuperating from 2012 knee surgery.

    2012: Townsend was a backup defensive end as a redshirt freshman in 2012. Overall in 2012 while appearing in 10 games (all but Stanford and Washington), he had 15 tackles, including 1.5 sacks of 6 yards.

    He had 3 tackles (with a sack) against Hawaii, 2 tackles against Syracuse, 1 tackle each against California and Utah and then 2 tackles each against Colorado (with 0.5 sack), Arizona, Oregon and Arizona State. He had knee cartilage surgery prior to the Georgia Tech game and missed that game.

    2011: Townsend redshirted as a freshman defensive end in 2011, his first year at USC.

    HIGH SCHOOL: His 2010 honors included Super Prep All-American, Prep Star All-American, UnderArmour All-American, ESPNU 150, Rivals 100, Prep Star Dream Team, Super Prep All-Farwest, Prep Star All-West, Orange County Register Fab 15 first team, Long Beach Press-Telegram Best in the West first team, Tacoma News Tribune Western 100, Cal-Hi Sports All-State second team, All-CIF Western Division and All-Ocean League Defensive MVP as a senior defensive lineman at Beverly Hills (Calif.) High. He missed part of the 2010 season with a jaw injury.

    As a junior in 2009, he made Cal-Hi Sports All-State Underclass second team and All-CIF Western Division. He had 73 tackles, with 7.5 sacks, plus 3 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery and 3 blocked PATs in 2009.

    As a sophomore in 2008, he had 38 tackles, with 3 sacks.

    He also played basketball at Beverly Hills.

    PERSONAL: His father, Greg, played at TCU (1981-82) and then was a 4-time All-Pro defensive end with the NFL's Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders (1983-93, 1997) and Philadelphia Eagles (1994).
