Kirk Herbstreit Suggests Sam Darnold Should Return To USC

Sam Darnold struggled against Ohio State.

After a dominant win for the Buckeyes over the Trojans in the Cotton Bowl, ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit broke down the game footage with Scott Van Pelt on SportsCenter.

Herbie made it quite clear he believes Sam Darnold needs to return to USC rather than enter the NFL Draft.

Here's the full video.

Darnold struggled against Ohio State's staunch defensive front, giving up three turnovers after getting sacked eight times. Herbstreit, however, believes Darnold has struggled all season and could benefit from another year with the Trojans.

Despite his struggles against the Buckeyes on Friday night, Darnold could still enter the draft, and would be considered a top pick.

He has a tough decision ahead.
