Corp transfers from USC to Richmond

Richmond, VA (Sports Network) - Sophomore quarterback Aaron Corp has decided to transfer from USC to Richmond, the University announced on Thursday.

"I'm very excited to get on campus and start class on Monday," Corp said. "Richmond allowed me the opportunity to compete and play right away and I was very comfortable meeting with coach Scott and his staff. The University has a tremendous football program."

Corp began the year at the top spot on the depth chart for the Trojans, but lost out the starting job when he suffered a cracked fibula prior to the start of this past season.

In his lone start of 2009 for an injured Matt Barkley, Corp finished 13-of-22 for 110 yards and an interception during USC's 16-13 setback to Washington on September 19.

Since he is transferring to a school in the Football Championship Subdivision, Corp will not have to sit out a year before returning to the field. He currently has two years of eligibility remaining.
