Report: Fight With Wayne Gretzky's Son Led To 5-Star QB's Transfer

A fight with the son of the NHL legend reportedly led to the elite recruit's transfer.

Matt Corral, a five-star quarterback in the 2018 class committed to USC, withdrew from Oaks Christian High School earlier this month. He transferred to Long Beach Poly.

Transfers aren't uncommon for top high school football prospects, but the reported reasoning behind this one is juicy.

According to TMZ Sports, Corral transferred out following a physical altercation with Tristan Gretzky, the son of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky. The alleged altercation reportedly took place at a high school game.

Multiple sources tell us Corral got into a fight with 16-year-old Tristan Gretzky at a high school basketball game earlier this month in front of a large group of people.

We're told there was tension brewing between the two for a while and it came to a head at the basketball game.

Corral transferred out of Oaks Christian days after the incident and posted on Twitter that the school was "biased towards money."

FYI, Tristan is the 3rd Gretzky kid to attend the $30,000-per-year private school and Wayne is one of O.C.'s top boosters ... he's reportedly raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years.

Corral is a 6-foot-2, 185-pound pro-style quarterback. He's the No. 9 player in the 2018 class, per 247Sports' Composite Rankings.
