Another Trojan catching the transfer train out of LA?

In the last month or so, USC has lost linebacker Jordan Campbell to Louisville, defensive end Malik Jackson to Tennessee, defensive back Byron Moore to the JUCO ranks, fullback D.J. Shoemate to UConn, and top recruit Seantrel Henderson to Miami.

This morning comes word that the attrition may continue.

Citing unnamed sources, the Los Angeles Daily News is reporting that wide receiver Brandon Carswell is considering a transfer to Cincinnati.  Coincidentally or not, former USC teammate and fellow receiver Vidal Hazelton transferred to the Bearcats last year and is expected to play a big role in UC’s pass-happy offense in 2010.

Carswell could also play a role in UC’s offense this year as he’s a junior and would not be forced to sit out a transfer year due to the NCAA sanctions levied on the Trojans football program.

Carswell had five receptions for 21 yards in nine games last season.

    YAWN. Another backup, seldom used player looking for more playing time. As for Seantrel, going to prove more trouble than he is worth. Not one top notch player has asked out of SC. Not one. Quit with the bombastic “Another Trojan catching the train out of town” crap……

    Dug is right. You only win games with your starters. Depth is for swimming pools.

    Can’t blame a player for leaving that isn’t getting playing time. It is what it is.

    Well, good for USC!

    This might be the dumbest comment regarding football I’ve ever seen.

    These kids are not leaving to play in bowls. They are leaving strictly due to playing time.
    With the recent losses due to transfers, and also the level of scholarhip losses, bowl losses, and vacated wins, USC is easily getting the 2nd most severe sanctions in NCAA history behind the SMU dealth penalty.
    All because one greedy unscrupulous kid took money from agents to leave school early, and USC didn’t figure it out.

    This sounds like a Trojan wearing blinkers.
    Did you miss: the extra FB coach, drug ( over 150 Ludes!), rape, and assault charges mysteriously dropped, agents and runners at every FB practice, an agent who previously helped to put SC on probation back again representing a player ( surprise sanctioned again)
    Players driving cars ( not theirs) they claim they never drove. Player’s fathers paying other players rent. Come on wake Up The arrogance , denial, and ignorance is why they are where they are today!

    Good list, Bud Kling. Also don’t forget women swimmers cheating on academics, the men’s tennis team, and the huge OJ Mayo payola.
    Uhh, folks, all of this amounts to what is called a “pattern” — and the NCAA finally woke up to see it. Too bad Mike Garrett still doesn’t, because his sturrborn denial only taints the good athletes that the school does have.

  9. Hauser says: Jul 17, 2010 7:23 PM

    correction to the above: it was the women’s tennis team, not men’s.

    I’m gonna have to agree with 305Canes on this comment. I hope that was a joke!

    I think it’s called sarcasm…deftly played rolltide.

    I glad to see USC fans are happy to be losing depth. Depth is for swimming pools like they say. I’m sure all USC fans feel they are a better football team with these backups gone. No one gets hurt in football so why do teams have backups anyway? Good luck fantasy fans. Keep sniffing the white stuff.
