Report: Former Corner Canyon, USC QB Jaxson Dart Commits To Ole Miss
SALT LAKE CITY – Former Corner Canyon High and USC quarterback Jaxson Dart committed to play for Lane Kiffin at Ole Miss, according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel.
The college football insider reported the news of Dart’s decision on Saturday, January 29.
Prior to playing at USC as a freshman in 2021, Dart was a standout quarterback for the Corner Canyon Chargers in Draper, Utah.
ESPN’s Chris Low spoke to Dart, who told him that he is heading to Ole Miss to continue his football career. Throughout the recruiting process, Dart went on his visits with tight end Michael Trigg.
After Dart entered the NCAA’s Transfer Portal following the conclusion of the 2021 season, teams from all over the country expressed interest in the quarterback’s talents.
Dart ultimately chose Mississippi over BYU and Oklahoma, the two other schools he’d visited earlier in January.

The former Corner Canyon star started in five of the six games played.
He made his debut against Washington State when he entered the game for Kedon Slovis, who went out early in the game with an injury. USC won that game and Dart’s first start against Arizona. After that, USC lost to Arizona State, UCLA, BYU, and California with Dart as the signal-caller.
