OT announces intentions to transfer to USC
The USC football team just landed a transfer at a position of need.
Former Tennessee Volunteer offensive tackle Drew Richmond announced his decision to transfer to USC on Friday.
The 6-foot-5, 315-pounder broke the news in an article for The Player’s Tribune.
“Next year, I will earn my masters degree in social entrepreneurship and play football at the University of Southern California,” Richmond wrote in his article.
Richmond is a former high school superstar who was ranked as the top player in the state of Tennessee during the 2015 recruiting cycle.
One recruiting news outlet even went as far to name Richmond as a five-star.
While he never quite lived up to that five-star billing, the product of Memphis, Tenn. did start in 25 games for the Volunteers. The USC offensive line has been atrocious in recent years and needed a grad transfer to add depth and experience in the worst way. Richmond should be expected to start at either right or left tackle immediately for the Trojans.
