USC football coach Shane Beamer added another transfer and another tight end to his collection of talent for the 2023 season in TE Trey Knox (6-5 245) from the University of Arkansas and Murfreesboro, TN. Knox made an official visit to USC last weekend and he announced his commitment to the Gamecocks Tuesday afternoon.

Knox has ties to USC thru receivers coach Justin Stepp and offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. Both were with him during his time at Arkansas, and he when he entered the NCAA Transfer Portal earlier this month, USC was thought of as a likely destination.

Knox was a highly regarded receiver coming out of high school who grew into a tight end with the Razorbacks. He played in 45 games over 4 seasons in Fayetteville, starting 29, and totaled 81 catches for 892 yards and 9 touchdowns. His career long reception is 49 yards and that came during his freshman season.

Knox only played against the Gamecocks once in his career, and that was this season. He caught 1 pass for 5 yards in the win over the Gamecocks in Fayetteville. His best game of the season was the opener against Cincinnati when he caught 6 passes for 75 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Knox drew interest from Clemson during his high school career and was offered by the Tigers in September of 2017.

USC might get more good news tonight. DT Elijah Davis of Wagner-Salley and East Mississippi JC is set to announce his commitment at 8:00 PM tonight, and the Gamecocks are expected to get the nod over Tennessee, Florida, Alabama and others.
