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.
