2017: Bigelow, whose USC career has been hampered by knee injuries, will look to rebound from a 2016 injury and be a significant contributor at defensive tackle as a senior in 2017.
2016: Bigelow was set to compete for a starting defensive tackle spot as a junior in 2016, but he tore ligaments in his right knee in 2016 spring practice and was sidelined for the 2016 season while recovering.
2015: After missing the previous 2 seasons while redshirting and then recuperating from an injury, Bigelow saw action as a backup defensive tackle in 13 games (all but UCLA) as a sophomore in 2015. Overall in 2015, he had 10 tackles, including 3 sacks for minus 19 yards, plus a deflection. He had 3 tackles (with a sack) against Arkansas State, 2 stops each versus Arizona State (with a sack), Utah and Colorado (with a sack) and 1 versus Wisconsin. He was limited in 2015 spring practice while recuperating from a 2014 knee injury.
2014: Bigelow, who was set to push for key playing time at nose tackle as a redshirt freshman in 2014, instead was sidelined all season after tearing knee ligaments a month prior to 2014 fall camp.
2013: Bigelow, who enrolled at USC in the spring of 2013 after graduating a semester early from high school, redshirted as a freshman defensive tackle in 2013, his first year at USC.
HIGH SCHOOL: His 2012 honors included Prep Star All-American Dream Team, ESPN 150, Rivals 100 and Scout 100 as a senior defensive lineman and tight end at Eastern Christian Academy in Elkton (Md.), which played an abbreviated 3-game schedule.
As a junior in 2011 at Red Lion Christian Academy in Bear (Del.), he made ESPNHS.com Underclass All-American first team and Max Preps Junior All-American second team while posting 40 tackles and 20 sacks.
As a 2010 sophomore, he had 39 tackles, 5 sacks and 1 fumble recovery on defense (he also played linebacker) and 6 receptions for 70 yards (11.7 avg.) with 1 TD on offense.
