USC quarterback Matt Fink, who supposedly was going to transfer to Illinois at one time, announced today he will remain with the Trojans.
Fink is graduating this summer and could have transferred without sitting out. He is unlikely to play at USC this season.
So maybe he is just comfortable being a USC reserve, which was the plan when he signed.
It also seems like the NCAA transfer portal does not have as many options for players as originally planned so maybe Fink didn’t see a perfect fit. And he’s used to not playing so why not just enjoy being a college student.
