Former USC Trojans quarterback Jack Sears visited NC State on Thursday, per 247Sports’ Tom Loy. Sears, who was part of the class of 2017, is a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining.
Sears played in only one game during his USC career which makes him a bit of an unknown quantity, though he was good in his lone appearance, which came against Arizona State in 2018: 20-28 passing for 235 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions.
He is a former four-star prospect and has some familiarity with North Carolina, as he was a one-time Duke commit. He had planned on playing at San Diego State after leaving USC, but a coaching change there led him to re-think that move. He has also visited Virginia and Northwestern this week, according to Loy.
Sears is listed at 6’3 and showed good mobility in high school, rushing for over 1,100 yards as a senior.
