LOS ANGELES -- With USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil officially confirming to WeAreSC that he leaving for the NFL, I spoke with the All-American and what led to his tough decision.

Kyle Williams: What were the key factors that went into you decision?

Matt Kalil: I guess sitting down and taking to my family and just seeing what's best for me and my future and my career. I mean, I love SC and everything they've done for me and I thank Coach Kiffin for putting me at left tackle and giving me the opportunity to excel and do well, but ultimately it was an opportunity that I saw that was a once in a lifetime chance to support myself and take my career to the next level.
