The USC Trojans basketball program will lose two more players, as freshman Alexis Moore and sophomore Curtis Washington have asked for their releases so they can transfer, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The news of additional departures on the heels of Garrett Jackson's announced transfer was expected, as these three transfers, combined with the expected spring signing of guard Brendyn Taylor (Los Angeles/Fairfax) will now land the Trojans at 13 scholarship players this fall.
Moore played in every game during his freshman season, as he was asked to play a much bigger role than expected when senior guard Jio Fontan was lost for the year to a pre-season knee injury.
Washington was another of USC's season-long injury squad, as he suffered a shoulder injury during preparation for the exhibition games in Brazil.
