Nosovitch planned to transfer around the same time last year after being moved from quarterback to tight end. A sit-down with head coach Steve Spurrier swayed Nosovitch to stay and play the season at tight end. Nosovitch was once again a quarterback this spring, even earning the praise from the Head Ball Coach after a few practice sessions. Spurrier enjoyed the running ability Nosovitch brought to the table, a characteristic the other three USC QBs do not possess.
The junior from Allentown, PA scored one touchdown during his career in the Garnet & Black, a rushing score during the 2013 season. In high school Nosovitch set all kinds of records as a quarterback. Those records and performances earned him a spot on the Parade All-American team after his senior season.
Nosovitch entered spring practice fourth on the quarterback depth chart but will now leave the program he's spent over threes in.
