Earlier this week, it seemed USC quarterback Matt Fink reportedly made a decision on his transfer destination. The Trojans’ QB was reportedly heading to the Big Ten.
Fink, a former three-star dual-threat quarterback recruit, reportedly decided to transfer to Illinois. His own father reportedly confirmed the news.
“Mike Fink said Lovie Smith made it clear to Matt he’ll be needed in a leadership role and will have every chance to win the starting job this fall,” Brady McCollough reported.
Just a few days later, however, it seems his commitment has changed.
Fink took to Twitter on Friday night to reveal he hasn’t announced his decision just yet.
“To clarify, I am NOT committed to any schools at the moment. I am in the process of deciding and still looking for other opportunities,” Fink said.

Fink was ranked the No. 13 dual-threat quarterback in the country coming out of high school in 2016. He threw for 46 yards and 1 touchdown in 2018.
Fink is a graduate transfer and will be immediately eligible for his new team. He has two years of eligibility left.
Illinois is in desperate need of a quarterback with playing experience. The only Illini quarterback with starting college experience, sophomore MJ Rivers II, entered the transfer portal last weekend.
