USC redshirt senior WR Jalen Greene reversed course on a commitment to transfer to Illinois and will now transfer to Utah State as a graduate.

Greene (6'2/200) announced a transfer commitment to Illinois near the end of March, but that pledge only held up for a month-plus. The former three-star recruit -- he actually entered the collegiate ranks as a dual-threat quarterback prospect -- was used sparingly during his time with the Trojans. As a graduate transfer, Greene will be eligible to play for Utah State immediately during the upcoming campaign. He caught 26 passes for 318 yards over the course of three active seasons with the USC. At Utah State, he and new teammate Ron'quavion Tarver figure to make for a nice little receiving duo in the fall.

Utah State and BYU have agreed to a home-and-home extension of their ongoing rivalry for 2021 and 2022.

The two programs were already set to square off each of the next three years. Toss two more onto the calendar. Utah State will have first hosting honors in the newly scheduled home-and-home on Oct. 1, 2021, with BYU returning the favor on Sept. 30, 2022. For the series as a whole, the Cougars hold a 48-36-3 edge on the Aggies.

Utah State junior WR Gerold Bright has transitioned to running back.

Bright (5'9/190) actually began this transition near the end of the 2017 season, as he began to see carries over the final three games of the campaign. In that space, the then-sophomore rushed for 245 yards (8.8 YPC) and a pair of touchdowns. He's competing with Tre Miller, Eltoro Allen, Morian Walker and Sione Fehoko for depth-chart positioning this offseason. His exact place on the totem pole should clarify during August camp.

The New England Patriots put Utah State CB Jalen Davis through a private workout earlier this week.

Tip of the cap to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline on this one. During his pro day on Wednesday, the 5-foot-9, 181-pound Davis turned in athletic testing marks including a sharp 40-yard dash run timed variously from the mid-to-low 4.4's, jumps of 36 inches (vertical) and 120 inches (broad) and a three-cone drill of 6.99 seconds. He showed a strong nose for the ball during his time at Utah State -- he picked off 11 passes for his career, including five in 2017 -- but his lack of size is going to be a major issue for some teams as Davis tries for a Day 3 selection.

USC redshirt senior WR Jalen Greene transferred to Illinois as a graduate.

Greene (6'2/200) initially joined USC as a three-star dual threat quarterback in the 2014 class. He took a redshirt for his first year on campus and transitioned to receiver prior to the start of the 2015 season. His was a quiet run after the position switch, as he failed to surpass more than 10 catches in any of his three active campaigns with the Trojans. While Greene's output at USC was very threadbare, we like what Illinois has done in terms of their transfer gets in advance of the 2018 season. Not only is Greene heading over to HC Lovie Smith's crew, they've additionally picked up transfers from Virginia Tech QB A.J. Bush and Appalachian State WR Shaedon Meadors.
Mar 22 - 5:52 PM

Utah State hired former North Carolina RB coach DeAndre Smith to serve in that capacity.

Smith steps in as replacement for Mark Tommerdahl, who accepted a job on staff with Purdue in February. The 2017 season was his lone campaign with the Tar Heels. Prior to that, Smith worked as running backs coach with those aforementioned Boilermakers (2016) and earlier roamed the sidelines of Syracuse (2013-15), New Mexico (2012 and 2008), Illinois (2010-11), UNLV (2009) and Miami (OH) (2005-07). During his tenure with New Mexico in 2008, he crossed paths with current Utah State HC Matt Wells, who was working as Lobos WR coach at the time.

USC senior WR Jalen Greene is transferring, according to Joey Kauffman of the Orange County Register.

Greene (6'2/200) was a highly-recruited player, but he leaves the Trojans after making just 26 catches in his three years in the program. He'll reportedly graduate in May, so outside of restrictions placed by the school, he'll be able to play next year as a graduate transfer.
Mar 5 - 8:23 PM

Utah State hired Arizona State LB coach Keith Patterson to serve as defensive coordinator.

In addition, Patterson will serve as safeties coach. Prior to coming over to Utah State, he had spent the previous four seasons with Arizona State. He served as defensive coordinator for the first three of those campaigns before seeing a demotion to linebackers' coach for the 2017 season. He has previous coordinating experience with West Virginia (2012-13) and Pittsburgh (2011) as well.
Jan 31 - 3:45 PM

Former Utah State QB Chuckie Keeton is joining the Utah State coaching staff.

His role is not yet known, but Football Scoop reports that Keeton will likely be an offensive graduate assistant. Keeton was an off-and-on starter for the Aggies from 2011 to 2015, throwing for 62 touchdowns and rushing for another 16. He spent last year as a graduate assistant at Oregon State.

Utah State junior WR Ron'Quavion Tarver caught eight passes for 97 yards in Friday's 26-20 overtime loss to New Mexico State in the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl.

Tarver (6'3/215) posted season-bests in terms of both receptions and yardage. Prior to his showing on Friday, he had not topped 90 yards in a game this season. He ends the year the owner of a 48-569-7 receiving line. He's been a sturdy, if mostly unspectacular, performer since joining Utah State as a JUCO transfer two years ago.

Utah State senior RB LaJuan Hunt rushed for 133 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Friday's 26-20 overtime loss to New Mexico State in the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl.

Hunt's one-yard touchdown run in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter gave Utah State a 20-13 lead, but they would be unable to hang onto that advantage, with the game eventually pushing to overtime tied at 20-20. The 5-foot-8, 200-pound senior ended his career on a high note this season, rushing for 828 yards and 11 touchdowns while playing in all 13 of Utah State's games. He's unlikely to see much interest in terms of the NFL Draft.

Utah State junior WR Ron'Quavion Tarver caught four passes for 86 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 38-35 loss to Air Force.

Tarver (6'3/215) scored both of his touchdowns in the fourth quarter, the latter of which gave Utah State a 35-31 lead with 5:34 remaining in the contest. Alas, the Aggies were unable to hold onto that advantage. The junior wideout finishes out the regular season having caught 40 passes for 472 yards and four touchdowns. He'll have another chance to make his mark when Utah State (6-6) takes part in bowl festivities next month.

Utah State senior RB LaJuan hunt picked up 111 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in a 38-0 drubbing of Hawaii on Saturday.

Hunt would have had a much bigger day if this game was even remotely close, as the Aggies were able to run for 338 yards against the Hawaii defense. His touchdown came early in the third on a 48 yard stroll through that gave Utah State a 28-0 lead and ended any doubt. The Aggies and Hunt are going bowling, and will finish their regular season next week against Air Force.
Sat, Nov 18, 2017 06:14:00 PM

Utah State senior RB LaJuan Hunt ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries in a 24-10 victory over New Mexico.

He added two catches for two yards. It's just the second time that Hunt (5'8/185) has been able to go over 100 yards, but it is the second time in the last three games for the senior tailback. His one-yard score gave the Aggies a 7-0 lead late in the first, and his 65-yard stroll through the New Mexico defense a quarter later made it 14-3. Hunt will try and make it back-to-back trips to the century club in two weeks against Hawaii.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 12:48:00 PM

Utah State junior WR Ron'Quavion Tarver caught three passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-14 loss to Boise State.

Tarver (6'3/215) caught a little two-yard touchdown near the end of the first quarter. He had been in a miserable place during the previous three games before posting respectable numbers on Saturday, having caught a combined four passes for 19 yards in that earlier space. On the whole, the junior wideout owns a 32-332-4 receiving line.
