Transfer Portal Updates - April 11 2024

USC cornerback Tre’Quon Fegans plans to enter the NCAA Transfer Portal, per On3’s Hayes Fawcett. Fegans began his career at Alabama before transferring to USC ahead of the 2023 campaign.

This past season, Fegans tallied nine tackles (four solos and five assists). He did not see any action in his lone season with the Crimson Tide and ultimately opted to use his redshirt.

Tre’Quon Fegans played high school football at Thompson (AL), where he was a four-star prospect. He was the No. 140 overall recruit in the 2022 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Fegans is the 22nd USC player to enter the transfer portal this offseason. Meanwhile, the program has added 11 players through the portal. The Trojans are currently listed at No. 32 in On3’s Transfer Portal Team Rankings.

USC DL Bear Alexander denies plans to enter the portal

While Fegans will examine his options elsewhere, other Trojans are ready to run it back.

On Wednesday, reports surfaced of USC defensive tackle Bear Alexander entering the NCAA transfer portal once the window opened on April 16. If Alexander does leave, it would mark his third school in as many seasons after beginning his career at Georgia

Alexander would likely be quite a popular name on the market as not too many potential first-round talents become available this time of year. Suffice to say, plenty of teams would have lined up for Alexander’s services.

However, Alexander has since come out and put those reports to rest.

“I’m not crystal clear on all of the noise or what any of this portal mess is about,” Alexander said Wednesday via X. “I’m here to finish what I started and that’s chasing a natty here at USC with my teammates.”

According to On3’s Hayes Fawcett, a conversation between Alexander and the USC coaching staff took place after reports on his plans to enter the portal, and he’s since walked those plans back. Instead, USC will be bringing back a key defensive piece for the 2024 season.

Keeping Alexander is a big pull for USC as they move from the Pac-12 and into the Big Ten. Head coach Lincoln Riley hired D’Anton Lynn as the program’s next defensive coordinator, hoping that side of the ball takes a step forward.
