WeAreSC On3 is a daily three-point briefing recapping news and notes surrounding USC Athletics. Today, we take a look at Florida offensive line transfer Ethan White committing to USC, Trojan offensive lineman Jason Rodriguez deciding to retire from football, and a big night for Evan Mobley.

White Commits

On Monday, USC picked up a commitment from former Florida offensive lineman Ethan White.

White started at left guard for the Gators this past season, earning second team All-SEC honors. At USC, he will look to fill the void left by the departure of starting left guard Andrew Vorhees, who is headed off to the NFL after six seasons as a Trojan

Rodriguez Retires

USC’s offensive line gained an addition yesterday with White’s commitment, but it also suffered a loss when Jason Rodriguez announced that he is retiring from football.

Rodriguez arrived at USC as a four-star recruit in the class of 2019 (according to On3 Consensus). He spent the past four seasons as a backup offensive lineman for the Trojans. Although he was never able to carve out a role in the starting lineup, Rodriguez was a vocal and charismatic presence in USC’s locker room throughout his time on the team.

“My time at USC has been nothing short of great and rewarding,” Rodriguez said in a statement on Instagram. “No one has had more fun and memorable times that I have had. It dampens my heart to say that the time has come for me to proudly hang my helmet and leave the great game of football. Serving USC has been an incredibly fun and exciting experience. I am beyond proud to call The University of Southern California my home and cannot wait to see what future we plan to mold.”

Mobley’s Big Night

Former USC Basketball player Evan Mobley had a big night on Saturday. In a matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ young star put up a career-high 38 points.

In addition, Mobley added nine rebounds and three assists as Cleveland took down Milwaukee 114-102.
