LOS ANGELES - It appears coach Pete Carroll has succeeded in landing quarterback Mitch Mustain.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Mustain, who started eight games as a freshman at Arkansas last season, will transfer to Southern California.
Mustain visited USC in February and watched the Trojans’ spring game on April 7.
If Mustain transfers, he will not be eligible to play until the 2008 season.
But Carroll still has quarterback John David Booty, who will start in 2007.
Mustain asked out of his scholarship at Arkansas after offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn left to take a job at Tulsa. Malzahn was Mustain’s coach at Springdale High School.
The 6-3 Mustain was regarded as the best prep quarterback prospect in the country when he committed to Arkansas. He passed for nearly 900 yards and 10 touchdowns as a freshman.

The nation grieved for those hurt, killed and affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. After one of the suspects was caught on Friday — following a day-long lockdown and manhunt — sports returned to Boston over the weekend.
