Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports is reporting USC Trojans forward Malik Martin is transferring from USC to USF.

Under normal circumstances Martin would have to sit out the 2016-17 season, but still have two years of eligibility remaining. It isn't known if USF intends to apply for any type of hardship waiver where he would be available immediately.

Martin averaged 6.6 minutes, 1.8 points, and 1.5 rebounds per game last season in 27 appearances. Those numbers were significantly down from his 2014-15 freshman season where he averaged 17.9 minutes, 5.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per contest.
