Second-year offensive lineman Maximus Gibbs is officially in the transfer portal.

247Sports was the first to report the news on Wednesday that Gibbs, who had been left off the updated fall camp roster, has officially submitted his name for a transfer. In his lone season with the program, he appeared in eight games.

The 6-foot-7, 390-pound Gibbs was a 3-star recruit out of St. John Bosco in the 2021 class. As a true freshman, he made a late-season switch from the offensive line to defensive tackle to help out with a depleted unit. He played in each of the Trojans’ final eight games, registering two tackles and a tackle for loss.

He moved back to the offensive line ahead of spring ball and worked at guard. He had not been with the program since.

Officially, Gibbs’ departure clears up the picture a bit at guard behind expected starters Andrew Vorhees and Justin Dedich. The Trojans will have Gino Quinones, Jason Rodriguez, Andres Dewerk, and Cooper Lovelace competing for the No. 2 roles on either side of center.
