While most of Los Angeles is intensely focused on what potential stars are coming into town this summer, at least one member of the city’s major teams is headed the opposite direction.
USC wide receiver Keyshawn ‘Pie’ Young took to Twitter on Friday to announce his plans to transfer from the school.
Young arrived as part of the Class of 2016 as a three-star prospect out of Miami. He was briefly moved to cornerback as a freshman and appeared in nine games as a backup but returned to his more natural position at receiver in 2017 (redshirting in the process).
The junior was good friends with Jamel Cook, a fellow Floridian at USC who transferred last season.
Young joins a growing exodus out of Los Angeles for the Trojans this summer as he’s the sixth wideout to enter the NCAA transfer portal. Bru McCoy and Velus Jones Jr. eventually returned to the team but Clay Helton and company have still seen Randal Grimes (UNLV), Josh Imatorbhebhe (Illinois), Trevon Sidney (Illinois) and now Young depart.
