USC Trojans News: USC DL enters transfer portal, Kedon Slovis finds new home, more
USC Football Defensive Lineman Colin Mobley has entered the transfer portal. Mobley ended up not playing at all this year, and played just 15 snaps last season. It's just become a situation where it's best for both sides to seek success while apart from each other. Mobley and SC clearly do not work together.

Mobley could potentially have a tough time finding an exciting new home in the portal, as he was not an impressive prospect coming out of high school. Mobley was just a three-star recruit out of Maryland, and just the No. 65 Defensive Lineman in the 2021 recruiting class (all recruiting ratings and rankings in article are as of 247Sports).

Former USC Football Quarterback Kedon Slovis has transferred to Brigham Young University. This is Slovis' second transfer of his career, as he transferred from SC to Pitt last offseason. His time at Pitt did not go as he likely would have liked, as the Panthers went 8-4 when their expectations were a bit higher than that.
Slovis completed just 58.4% of his passes, and for 7.6 pass yards per attempt. He averaged only seven adjusted pass yards per attempt, and while he only threw nine interceptions, he only threw 10 touchdowns. Unfortunately, it appears that Clay Helton and Graham Harrell may have ruined him. Hopefully for Slovis and Mobley, they have success in their next stages of their careers.
Four-star transfer cornerback Tony Grimes has chosen to not transfer to the USC Football program. He has transferred to Texas A&M. It is puzzling as to why he would want to play for a lowly program like TAMU, but he decided to confusingly choose 5-7 A&M (who hasn't finished a year ranked in a non-pandemic season since 2018) over No. 10 USC.
Grimes would have been a nice pickup for the Trojans, as while he hasn't lived up to his five-star status coming out of high school, he still has 16 PD's in the last two seasons. It's not too surprising, however, as SC does not provide as much of a prioritization for NIL opportunities as the Aggies famously do.
