According to recent reports from Sports Illustrated's The Grove Report, Michael Trigg is "potentially planning a trip to Oxford" to visit Lane Kiffin's Ole Miss program, and his 2021 USC football teammate Jaxson Dart may follow.

Dart and Trigg entered the transfer portal on Monday, and social media indicates that they may be going to join forces at whatever that next spot is. That's because Trigg entered the portal almost immediately after Dart did, and the two of them have been corresponding on finding a landing spot on Twitter.

Dart would be a great fit with Kiffin over at Ole Miss. Kiffin exceled with an athletic, strong-armed gunslinger last year with former SC QB commit Matt Corral, and Dart fits that profile. As for Trigg, he could fit with just about anybody due to him being a bit of a freak of nature. He's a big 6'4," 245 pound tight end who also has the athleticism to line up out wide.

USC football transfers Jaxson Dart and Michael Trigg transferring together helps both.

If Jaxson Dart and Michael Trigg both want to leave USC football (which I don't think is the best move for them), then transferring together would help them adjust to their new spot. Whether it's Ole Miss or wherever, Dart will have a familiar target to throw to in Trigg and Trigg will have a passer who knows his game in Dart.

If they do transfer to the Rebels, the team would likely have an easier time transitioning to a new-look QB depth chart with Corral going to the draft. Some early polls have Ole Miss ranked in the last spot of the top 25, or even out of it completely.

I'd like to see where they'd stand if Dart and Trigg came over. it goes to show that Ole Miss needs some big transfer hits like this. Trigg wasn't the most consistent performer this year, but he's got the talent to succeed in the SEC. Dart already showed those flashes, and would change the outlook of Ole Miss's season immediately if he lands there.
