Xavion Alford, a reserve safety at Texas, announced this morning he would transfer to USC.
Alford made four tackles this season and was No. 3 on the Texas depth chart. He is a true freshman.
USC needs safeties because Talanoa Hufanga and Isaiah Pola-Mao could both turn pro and Alford makes sense because he already knew USC defensive coordinator Todd Orlando and safeties coach Craig Naivar.
Alford (6-0, 190-pounds) was rated as the No. 139 player overall and the No. 8 safety in the 2020 recruiting class.
