Mustain Is Set to Transfer to USC

Former Arkansas quarterback Mitch Mustain, the 2005 prep player of the year, is set to transfer to USC, according to the L.A. Times. Mustain will join former Razorback receiver Damian Williams, who transferred to USC in January. Mustain and Williams, who also were teammates at Springdale High, will be eligible in 2008.

Mustain's transfer to USC had been expected since he visited USC in February. He returned earlier this month for the Trojans' spring game and the only other team under consideration was Tulsa, where Mustain's high school coach, Gus Malzahn, is now offensive coordinator. Malzahn was offensive coordinator last season at Arkansas.

In the top video, Mustain leads the Razorbacks to a touchdown in his first drive as a college quarterback, oddly enough against USC. Included in the drive is a 42-yard pass to Williams.

In the bottom video, Mustain draws high praise from former USC quarterback Matt Leinart during an event last summer in Los Angeles.

Leinart, by the way, has a court appearance in Scottsdale later this month. The Arizona Cardinal quarterback is facing arraignments on three speeding violations. Leinart has been clocked speeding four times in less than a year.

Those song girls barely pay attention to what's happening in the game. (:54 sec video mark)
