Former four-star recruit Ricky Town will transfer out of USC.
Town finished high school early and enrolled at USC last January as part of the Trojans' 2015 recruiting class. He was a verbal commit at Alabama before switching over to USC.
“We wish him the best of luck,” Sarkisian said, reports the Los Angeles Times. “He's worked extremely hard, he's been a great member of our program and I'm sure wherever he decides to go, he'll be a good member of that program as well.”
Town was one of two quarterbacks in the Trojans' 2015 class. The other, Sam Darnold, is expected to take Town's No. 3 spot on the depth chart for the upcoming season.
The Trojans open the 2015 season, the second for coach Steve Sarkisian, Sept. 5.
