USC running back Stephen Carr to enter NCAA transfer portal

As USC leaves behind a by-committee approach to its backfield, one of its most experienced running backs is planning to leave USC.

Stephen Carr has decided to enter the NCAA transfer portal, a person familiar with the decision confirmed to The Times, ending an up-and-down, four-year tenure that started with a bang as a freshman, only to taper off in the seasons that followed.

His departure clears the way for Texas transfer Keaontay Ingram to join forces with sixth-year senior Vavae Malepeai as the two top backs in a Trojans rushing attack that last season ranked among the worst in college football.
