USC quarterback transfer Ricky Town has arrived in Fayetteville with his family according to sources and is visiting the Arkansas program.
Town (6-3, 205) is a four-star quarterback from Ventura, Calif., St. Bonaventure who originally committed to Alabama before signing with USC and enrolling at that school in January.
Town, who played in the U.S. Army All-American game, was 192-of-290 passing for 2,639 yards and 32 touchdowns his senior season while also rushing for 288 yards.
"We wish him the best of luck," USC head coach Steve Sarkisian told the Los Angeles Times. "He's worked extremely hard, he's been a great member of our program and I'm sure wherever he decides to go, he'll be a good member of that program as well."
USC approved his release, but it is a conditional one that says he can’t transfer to any Pac-12 school, Alabama, Arkansas State, Idaho, UNLV, Notre Dame, Utah State, Western Michigan, Texas and BYU.
He originally committed to Alabama when current Florida offensive coordinator Doug Mussmier was with the Crimson Tide before being replaced by Lane Kiffin.
Town de-committed when Kiffin was hired.
USC has returning senior quarterback Cody Kessler as well as five-star redshirt sophomore Max Browne to back him up and Sam Darnold as a true freshman.
