There is news emerging from the world of college football as the deadline for players to enter the NCAA Transfer Portal approaches. It is reported that two players from USC have decided to put their names in the portal, including an up-and-coming defensive player.
The player in question is Grayson "Pup" Howard, a 6-4, 241-pound linebacker. He was a standout recruit in USC's 2023 class and had made official visits to USC, Florida, and Georgia before committing to the Gamecocks. Howard has shown great promise and was expected to be a starting linebacker for USC in the upcoming season. He played in 11 games this season, recording 19 tackles, one tackle for loss, and one fumble recovery.
In addition to Howard, Kamron Sandlin, a freshman tight end, has also entered the Transfer Portal. Sandlin, who stands at 6-4 and weighs 210 pounds, committed to USC in June of 2022 but did not appear in any games this season. He was a dual-threat quarterback in high school but was converted to the tight end and running back positions.
The Transfer Portal has seen a significant amount of activity, with a total of 21 USC scholarship players from this past season entering their names. This number is expected to grow as the deadline approaches.
There are speculations about Howard's role on the team for the upcoming season. It is suggested that he may have been a backup or possibly even the third-string middle linebacker. However, the team's plans may change depending on potential transfer linebackers that USC may bring in.
The college football landscape is constantly evolving, and the Transfer Portal is a crucial part of the process, allowing players to explore new opportunities and find the right fit for their talents. As the deadline draws near, it will be interesting to see how the portal reshapes the rosters of college football teams across the country.
