2022 NFL Offseason thread in A and J's Olde Tyme Sports Pub Posted May 9 On 5/4/2022 at 4:22 PM, scs787 said: More than covid, I'm sure there's been a player who's been stuck behind some really good players that end up being really good players themselves. I guess the question with that is why didn't he transfer sooner? There were strong rumors that he was going to transfer after the 2018 season, but it never happened. Then he ended up transferring after the 2019 season. Word came out later that he didn't feel he'd be granted a hardship transfer waiver from the NCAA, so he would have had to sit out the 2019 season if he had transferred then. Instead, he played at USC one more year to graduate, and then at that point, he could transfer anywhere freely (without having to sit out a year) because he was a grad transfer.
