USC Trojans quarterback Sam Darnold was considered the best quarterback by some in the 2018 NFL Draft before the season. However, with the NFL Draft months away, it appears right now that Darnold will pass up the NFL and millions to return to school.
Darnold has not lived up to expectations – and it does not appear like he’s the No. 1 pick anymore. Even his potential Heisman hopes have been dashed, as his play has declined.
The Trojans have been a disappointment this season and some of it has to do with Darnold’s play. He’s competing 63.5% of his passes and has 17 touchdowns to go along with 10 interceptions.
He’s only 38h in passing efficiency nationally. He’s only one spot better than former Trojans quarterback Max Browne, who is now the Pittsburgh Panthers quarterback.
He may not be the only Trojans player, who may return next season. Their running back Ronald Jones may also return, as well.
The redshirt sophomore was riding high after the Trojans big win over the Penn State Nittany Lions on Jan. 2. This season, though, he’s 183 of 288 for 2,292 yards along with the aforementioned 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
The Trojans are 6-2 this season. They were destroyed by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 49-14 on Saturday. He went 20 of 28 for 229 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in the game.
