Dart signed with USC in the 2021 class out of Corner Canyon High School, where he led the Chargers to a state championship, while being named the National Gatorade Player of the Year. He earned the backup QB spot going into the season as a four-star recruit.
USC will now let Slovis and Dart battle for the starting job this week as the Trojans will battle Oregon State on Saturday, September 25 at 8:30 p.m. MDT on FS1.
