Southern California dual-threat quarterback Jaxson Dart has entered the transfer portal, multiple outlets reported Monday.

The true freshman appeared in six games for USC this season, completing 61.2 percent of his passes for 1,353 yards and nine touchdowns against five interceptions.

Dart relieved starting quarterback Kedon Slovis on Sept. 18 when the latter injured his neck on USC's first possession against Washington State. Dart set a program record for most passing yards in a debut -- 391 -- to go with four touchdowns and two interceptions as the Trojans won 45-14.

However, Dart sustained a meniscus injury during the game, reportedly during the second quarter, and played through it.

Dart underwent surgery and returned Oct. 30 against Arizona, splitting time with Slovis against the Wildcats.

Dart's impending departure opens the door for Oklahoma transfer quarterback Caleb Williams to rejoin new USC coach Lincoln Riley in Los Angeles. Williams played under Riley for the Sooners in 2021.
