USC has had a tumultuous offseason, with multiple transfers and offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury leaving only a few weeks after being hired to become head coach of the Arizona Cardinals.

Now, another Trojan is moving on. Wide receiver Josh Imathorbhebhe announced his transfer earlier today.

"After much consideration and contemplation, I've decided to transfer from the University of Southern California, and take my talents elsewhere to pursue my dreams," he wrote on Twitter.

Imathorbhebhe was a four-star recruit out of Suwanee (Ga.) in the class of 2016. He enrolled early at USC in January 2016, joining his brother on the Trojan roster.

However, after redshirting in 2016, Imathorbhebhe only played in seven games for the Trojans over the next two seasons. He made just one appearance in 2018.

For his time at USC, Imathorbhebhe caught two passes for 11 yards. He will have two years of eligibility remaining at his next stop.

USC finished 5-7 in 2018, missing a bowl game for the first time in seven years. It was the program's first losing record in a season since 2000.

Put all of this together and Clay Helton will go into 2019 firmly on the hot seat in Los Angeles.
