- According to College Football Talk’s Ben Allbright, he predicts that Sam Darnold will return for his junior season in 2018. This would be a huge surprise to all.

This season, Sam Darnold has had a bit of a regression and a return to USC next season could be a possibility. Should Darnold for a junior year, the draft stock of quarterbacks like Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson should rise. (Source: College Football Talk)
