Jalen Greene will be in a different position at the start of the 2015 season. According to USCFootball.com, Greene will be moving from quarterback to wide receiver to give the team more depth at the position.

A member of the Trojans 2014 recruiting class, Greene was 35-6 as a three-year starter for Serra High School in Gardena, California. In his three years, Greene threw for 6,355 yards and 68 TDs while rushing for 3,040 yards and 30 TDs. Greene graduated high school a semester early and enrolled in USC in time so that he could participate in spring practice in 2014. Greene redshirted last year but was named USC's Offensive Service Team Player of the Year.

USC will now have four scholarship quarterbacks in 2015 and nine wide receivers.

Head Coach Steve Sarkisian has not made the move official yet.
