The Trojans have been a popular destination for grad-transfers these past few weeks as they’ve announced they’re adding their third transfer in the last two weeks. Their latest is Chevez Goodwin, a 6’9 forward from Wofford. Goodwin joins former Utah Valley wing Isaiah White and Santa Clara guard Tahj Eaddy.

With the Trojans returning only one player from their starting five in 2019, talented sophomore Ethan Anderson, all three of their newest players will likely see meaningful time for a team that looks to be full of talent but lacking experience.
Goodwin had a number of potential suitors that included Houston, Georgia, and Xavier but he decided USC would be the best place for him to have a significant impact. With the Trojans losing Onyeka Okongwu and Nick Rakocevic, they’ll need someone to step-up and take control of the boards. That’s where Goodwin comes in as he’s coming to Southern California after leading Wofford in rebounds with 6.2 per game.
Woods finished the 2019 season with game averages of 11.9 points with .9 assists and 1.1 blocks.
