USC junior tight end Randall Telfer took to social media on Christmas day to announce that he would be returning to play his senior year for the Trojans.



The move is a boost for the USC offense under new head coach Steve Sarkisian, as Telfer is an experienced and talented player who is known for being a good blocker and dependable pass catcher. Telfer has 44 career catches for 451 yards and 10 touchdowns but was limited to only six catches for 78 yards and one score in 2013 due to injuries.

The Trojans now await a final decision from Xavier Grimble, another draft-eligible junior tight end. Grimble has given indications that he will likely stay at USC, but no final decision has been made yet. Grimble was third on the USC receptions list in 2013 with 25 catches for 271 yards and two touchdowns.

At Washington, Sarkisian coached 2013 Mackey Award winner Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

USC will also return Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick as a third-year junior tight end in 2014.
