Former USC Trojans quarterback Jaxson Dart announced that he’ll be packing his bags for Oxford after officially transferring to Lane Kiffin’s Rebels.

According to ESPN’s sources, Dart will be transferring from USC to Ole Miss —despite SC’s open slot at starting quarterback after former starter Kedon Slovis transferred to Pittsburgh.

Dart’s season was hindered by a torn meniscus. Still, he amassed 1,353 passing yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions in three starts for the Trojans. Dart also completed 61.9 percent of his passes.

ESPN additionally reported that Trojans tight end Michael Trigg will join Dart — also committing to Ole Miss on Saturday.

Kiffin and the Rebels are slowly engineering a worthy recruiting class to fill in for the lost starters. Dart will add needed competition for the lead role against Rebels backup Luke Altmyer.
