Report: Arkansas QB transferring to USC

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Mitch Mustain, a freshman quarterback at Arkansas who obtained a release to transfer and left the team in January, is headed for Southern California, according to a published report.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, citing an unnamed source, said Friday that Mustain would enroll at USC during the summer semester. He has remained enrolled at Arkansas for the spring semester, but did not participate in the Razorbacks' spring workouts, concluded earlier this month.
As a transfer, Mustain would have to sit out a year at Southern California. Damian Williams, a teammate of Mustain's at Springdale High School who was a Razorback receiver last season, has already transferred and enrolled at USC.
Mustain was the Parade magazine prep player of the year in 2005. His high school coach at Springdale, Gus Malzahn, led the unbeaten Bulldogs to a state championship that year and then was hired by Arkansas as offensive coordinator. Mustain eventually followed his coach to Arkansas.
But Malzahn took a new job as Tulsa's offensive coordinator after a 10-4 season in which Arkansas relied on its running game – led by Heisman Trophy runnerup Darren McFadden – and not the spread, no-huddle, pass-heavy game that Malzahn advocated. Shortly after Malzahn's departure, Mustain asked for and received permission to transfer.
Mustain completed 69 of 132 passes last season, for 894 yards and 10 touchdowns, with nine interceptions. He started eight straight games for Arkansas in 2006, and all were victories. But he was benched after throwing an interception in a November win over South Carolina, and hardly played again until splitting time with starter Casey Dick, a former Allen standout, in Arkansas' Capital One Bowl loss to Wisconsin.
