USC offensive tackle Michael Tarquin is leaving the program as a graduate transfer after one season in Los Angeles, according to 247Sports’ Chris Trevino.

Tarquin came to USC last offseason by way of Florida and was expected to fill an immediate role on a remade offensive line. He started the first seven games of the season, but was replaced in the starting five after the Notre Dame game.

He’ll finish his lone season with the Trojans as the seventh-graded lineman for USC. Pro Football Focus gave him a 62.8 offensive grade, a 58.9 grade as a run blocker, and a 59 grade as a pass blocker. He was charged with allowing 14 pressures, including three sacks.

Tarquin certainly would have provided USC some needed depth on the offensive line next season, but given the close to 2023, it seems unlikely he would have started.

USC has lost 12 known scholarship players to the transfer portal thus far. Tarquin is the second on the offensive line, joining Andrew Milek.

He’ll have one season of eligibility remaining.
