"I'm very excited to get on campus and start class on Monday," Corp said in a statement. "Richmond allowed me the opportunity to compete and play right away and I was very comfortable meeting with Coach Scott and his staff. The University has a tremendous football program and is nationally-recognized for its academics, especially in my major of international studies."
Corp entered fall camp as the starting quarterback for the Trojans but suffered a cracked fibula and was overtaken by freshman Matt Barkley.
The 6-3, 200-pound quarterback passed for 155 yards and one touchdown while participating in three games in 2009.
Corp will be immediately available to play at Richmond and still has two years of eligibility left.
"We wish Aaron the best," USC head coach Pete Carroll said. "I know it'll work out well for him."
USC quarterback Aaron Corp has decided to transfer to Richmond.
