Drew Richmond, the graduate transfer from Tennessee who visited USC last month, announced today he will transfer to USC.
Richmond was the No. 2-ranked offensive tackle in the nation in 2015 by Rivals. But he played for arguably the worst offensive line in the nation last season.
The Vols’ offensive line was ranked last in the nation (130th) in “stuff rate,” which measures the percentage of carries by running backs that are stopped at or before the line of scrimmage. The Vols’ offensive line also ranked 127th in “line yards per carry” and “standard downs line yards per carry.”
