On Thursday night, a report revealed a former top quarterback recruit is visiting a rival program after leaving his school earlier this year.

Former USC quarterback Jack Sears is reportedly set to visit a Pac-12 program this weekend.

According to a report from 247Sports, Sears is reportedly visiting Oregon State.

"Sources have informed 247Sports that USC transfer quarterback Jack Sears is currently at Oregon State for a visit this weekend," Tom Loy of 247Sports reported.

Sears left the USC football program when he lost the starting job to J.T. Daniels. The sophomore quarterback lost the backup role to Kedon Slovis, who took over as the team's starter when Daniels went down with a torn ACL.

"If the plan doesn't work, change the plan, but never the goal," Sears announced on Twitter. "The following statement is to clarify the situation and avoid speculation."

Sears was the No. 4 Pro-Style quarterback and the No. 13 senior in the state of California in 2017, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

He originally committed to Duke before flipping to USC in late fall of his senior year. Sears enrolled early with the Trojans in January 2017.

Sears made his lone start at USC against Arizona State in 2018, throwing for 235 yards and two touchdowns on 20-of-28 passing.
