Former USC target Anthony Lucas leaves Jimbo Fisher, enters the transfer portal

After a disappointing Cotton Bowl loss to the Tulane Green Wave, everybody knows which area of the team the USC Trojans need to address: the defense.

After the defense blew the Cotton Bowl game, USC needs to bring in some more talent.

Alex Grinch is on the hot seat, and the transfer portal needs to be examined with all eyes on that side of the ball.

Texas A&M freshman EDGE Anthony Lucas announced his decision to leave Aggieland and head into the portal, according to his Twitter profile.

He was one of the top players at his position in his class, and USC had an interest in him before he decided to play football at College Station in his freshman year.

Lucas had interest in Oklahoma and USC before deciding to go to Texas A&M, so there are a lot of reasons to believe that USC is in the mix for the talented edge rusher.

Before he made his decision, his final seven were as follows: Alabama, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, Oregon, USC and Texas A&M.

Lucas played in just seven games and had 10 total tackles, and there is no doubt that he would slot right in and become an immediate contributor for the Trojans.
