Matt Fink looked sharp at yesterday’s player workout and will probably be the backup to JT Daniels when the season starts because of his experience edge over Jack Sears.
So where does all this leave Sears?
When should he transfer?
Clay Helton told a source he did not think Sears would transfer. But how will Sears feel after he goes through a training camp where Daniels is anointed the starter?
Will he be bold enough to leave in August? Or will he be more conventional and transfer in the spring?
Remember Max Browne was a team-first guy but Sam Darnold’s emergence had Browne leave the team before the Rose Bowl vs. Penn State. Browne probably should have left the previous spring but Helton strung along the QB competition to keep Browne.
It might have cost USC a chance a College Football Playoff spot because USC lost to Stanford with Browne and forced Darnold to make his start at Utah (another loss). But hey, it kept Browne around!
