Oklahoma, TCU Make Final Cut for USC Transfer QB Jaxson Dart
Former USC quarterback Jaxson Dart has narrowed his choices down to three schools, and USC isn’t one of them, according to On3Sports’ Gerry Hamilton.
According to Hamilton, Dart has cut down his list of landing spots to Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and TCU. All three schools will be under new offensive regimes in 2022, and it will be a huge addition for whichever program he chooses in the coming days.
The former four-star quarterback out of Draper, Utah was electric when he replaced Kedon Slovis in the latter half of the 2021 season. Appearing in six games, Dart was responsible for 1,396 yards and 11 touchdowns behind a putrid USC offensive line. Any of the three options at his disposal will offer better protection than USC did during Dart’s true freshman year.
Dart is reportedly on campus at Oklahoma on Thursday with fellow USC transfer, tight end Michael Trigg. The two are thought to be a package deal and will likely land with Ole Miss or Oklahoma together.
Dart entering the transfer portal was set into motion when former Oklahoma quarterback Caleb Williams visited USC over the weekend. Williams is thought to be a USC lock now and is expected to announce that he will play for Lincoln Riley and the Trojans in 2022. If Dart was to land at Oklahoma, it would be somewhat of a trade between the two powerhouses and would reinforce the idea of how wacky and weird the transfer portal is in 2021.
