With Christmas now behind us, it probably would be good time to start to monitor the transfer portal.
USC is already going to lose quite a few players to the NFL Draft (Alijah Vera-Tucker, Talanoa Hufanga, Amon-Ra St. Brown among others). And if a couple other players decide to transfer, that could really impact the roster for 2021.
USC can also add transfers. But so far, the Trojans have added a defensive lineman from Alabama who fell out of the playing rotation and appeared in one game along with a Texas safety who fell to No. 3 on the depth chart.
They might flourish at USC but it’s not a sure thing.
