 LOS ANGELES (AP) -Southern California wide receiver Vidal Hazelton has decided to transfer.
Hazelton was the team's second-leading receiver as a sophomore last year, but was hampered by injuries this season.
``I signed the release papers for him today,'' Trojans coach Pete Carroll said after practice Tuesday. ``It's been a rough year for him. He's going to leave in good standing. We're going to do everything we can to help him. He encountered one injury after another. It didn't allow for a steady opportunity to get going.
``This is a very difficult program. It's not for everybody.''
Carroll said there were family matters involved in Hazelton's decision as well. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound junior from New York caught 50 passes for 540 yards and four touchdowns last season but had only six receptions for 38 yards while playing in eight of USC's 11 games this season.
``It's too bad. He's going to be a good player wherever he goes,'' Trojans quarterback Mark Sanchez said. ``It's his decision to leave. We wish him the best.''
