CFB Note - Southern California Darnold, Sam

Jan 4, 2018 - 6:47 AM QB Sam Darnold will skip his final two college seasons to enter the 2018 draft.

Darnold thanked USC coach Clay Helton for "trusting in a kid from San Clemente High School with such little game tape and for giving me the opportunity and chance to start."

Darnold passed for 4,143 yards this season, but he was plagued by 13 interceptions and eight lost fumbles during an 11-3 season that ended with USC losing to Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl.

Darnold had a 20-4 record as USC's starter. wrote: "To be clear, Darnold has his warts -- an elongated throwing motion is the biggest concern -- but he is accurate (including on the move), athletic and tough."

No one has shouted yet.
