After three years at USC with only a handful of appearances for the Trojans, wide receiver Trevon Sidney has decided to take his talents elsewhere. Two months after deciding to transfer from USC, Sidney has found a new school.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Sidney announced that he had committed to Illinois. The former four-star wide receiver joins fellow USC transfer Oluwole Betiku Jr. in joining Lovie Smith’s side.
Coming out of high school in 2016, Sidney was a four-star recruit and the No. 143 overall prospect in the country, per 247Sports. He was rated as the No. 26 wide receiver in the nation and the No. 21 prospect from the state of California.
In two previous seasons at USC, Sidney totaled 10 receptions for 139 yards.

The loss of Sidney is yet another blow to a USC offense that has been devastated by departures this off-season.
Shortly after offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury opted to join the Arizona Cardinals as head coach, five-star recruit Bru McCoy changed his commitment to Texas.
Given the mini-exodus from USC, it might be hard to have the same high level of expectations that we usually do for the Trojans in 2019.
