Five USC players entered the transfer portal this week, so I asked a player what was behind the flurry of roster moves?
“Some of the players are being told it is in their best interest to find another school to play at,” the player said. “They don’t have a future at USC.”
This will also free up scholarships for Lincoln Riley to get other players via the transfer portal. And USC is hosting 26 recruits this weekend, so scholarships are valuable.
It also shows the new coaching staff has already watched film and decided who can help them.
I wonder what Riley has told Kedon Slovis? Even if he doesn’t think Slovis will start, he probably wouldn’t mind keeping him around as a backup.
