USC running back Amir Carlisle has announced that he will transfer from USC to Notre Dame.

This is unusual news.

Players don’t usually leave a school after a successful freshman year, especially when they are as well positioned as Carlisle was within the USC backfield. Carlisle clearly has the explosive playmaking ability that Lane Kiffin likes plus he also brings an element of toughness so his future was bright in terms of playing time.
