"My immediate goal is to still be involved around here, be a leader and train for the NFL combine and do what I can," Hancock said.
He was the Trojans' starter for most of 2003, then redshirted in 2004 after having surgery on his right knee, and also having a ruptured chest muscle.
Used primarily as a blocker, Hancock has a total of eight carries for 19 yards in his career, and 24 receptions for 277 yards and two touchdowns.
He hurt his knee during a routine drill on Monday.
