USC Trojans Offseason: Brice Butler Transfers, Will Not Return

The USC Trojans will see yet another high-profile player leave their program. First it was tailback Amir Carlisle moving on from USC to Notre Dame. Then Kyle Prater made his move to leave the program. Now it's Brice Butler's turn apparently.

Tidbit from Mini War Room: #USC receiver Brice Butler will not return for his senior season. http://t.co/6VlrXBQw

To clarify: #USC receiver Brice Butler is in LA, graduated but is not going through workouts now. Will play final season elsewhere.

Butler's transfer is a little strange, as he will be a redshirt senior next year and seemed to be a natural third receiver in an offense featuring both Robert Woods and Marqise Lee. Perhaps Butler wants to go to a place where he'll be a feature receiver and elevate his draft stock, as it's likely he'll be down the totem pole with regards to being Matt Barkley's main target.

After a promising freshman campaign where he caught 20 passes in 2009, Butler only managed 21 catches in the next two season as he tumbled down the totem pole. He will be eligible to play immediately whereever he ends up going as he did graduate, so it's likely his new spot will give him a grand opportunity to shine.
