Point guard Ethan Anderson sent out a message today implying he would transfer.
“I want to thank USC from the bottom of my heart for the amazing ride being on 3 tournament teams and doing things people thought I could never do. I’ve had nothing but fun and I’m so thankful to have played in front of the city that molded me. USC will forever be in my heart.”
The move probably makes sense. Anderson is unlikely to start at USC next season, especially when the coaches are expected to try and add players through the transfer portal.
A bigger issue would be if Boogie Ellis departed, which is being rumored. Ellis would have to sit out a season if he went to another school.
The USC roster — especially if Drew Peterson — needs an overhaul. I’m not sure any of the freshmen this season look like big impact players outside of some flashes from Kobe Johnson.
