Though Sam Darnold continues to be regarded as one of the top NFL quarterback prospects in the country, it seems more and more likely that he will return to USC for his redshirt junior season.

Sporting News’ Eric Galko reported in a column published on Tuesday that Darnold is expected to return to school. He says that Darnold has “spurned away NFL discussion and the role agents play in the process since the first half of the season.” He adds that most around the league are more excited about Darnold as a 2019 prospect than 2018 QB.
