Ford to UCLA
“You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain”—Harvey Dent, The Dark Knight (2008)
In four seasons at USC, Ford caught 40 passes for 617 yards and five touchdowns. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
Garcia Enters Portal
A name familiar to many USC fans elected to enter the NCAA Transfer Portal yesterday in Miami quarterback Jake Garcia.
A top-55 recruit in the class of 2021 (per On3 Consensus), Garcia was committed to USC for over a year. However, he flipped his commitment to the Hurricanes shortly before Signing Day. The Trojans wound up signing both Miller Moss and Jaxson Dart in the 2021 class instead of Garcia at quarterback.
