It looks like Bubba Bolden will be wearing different colors next college football season. The former USC Trojans’ safety announced via Twitter and Instagram that he has committed to transfer to the University of Miami.

This news comes as a surprise to many Trojan fans who believed Bolden would rejoin the program after being reinstated by the university this past week. He was all set to enroll in classes for the spring semester.

The Hurricanes will be getting a strong, physical safety who is ready to play right away. The former four-star will provide a huge boost to an already star-studded secondary. Bolden will be rejoining his former high school teammate, Brevin Jordan, who is said to have been a huge reason for Bolden’s transfer. It is also worth noting that according to 247Sports, Bolden will be eligible to play three more years at Miami.

At the end of the day, this leaves USC’s safety unit looking very thin heading into next year. Although we would have all loved for Bolden to suit up for the Men of Troy next year, we wish him all the best in this new chapter of his life.
