Matt Barkley is a good dancer

We know USC quarterback Matt Barkley can throw the ball a bit. He's also an avid guitar player who makes plenty of use of the stock guitar in USC's new John McKay Center players lounge.

But this was news to us, and maybe others: He's apparently a pretty good dancer, as was on display during evening warmups at Howard Johnson Field during a recent practice that Pac-12 Digital attended. Keep your eyes on No. 7:

The music on this night was a surprise too -- we expected something hipper out of the Trojans. USC coach Lane Kiffin made it clear that he is not the culprit; the pod or player with the  most outstanding performance from the previous practice meets with an internal DJ to pick out tunes for the following day. Looks like Barkley liked what he heard.
