Trojans receiving corps thinner with departure - OC Register
...Carroll said he addressed a "handful" of his players about other schools that might tempt them to transfer. The Trojans now expect Holland to turn in his transfer papers...

..."From a competitive sense, I understand why guys would eyeball our roster and look for guys here and there."...Carroll said. "The other side of it is it's illegal, so it has to be done properly."

Carroll said he would report any instances of other schools contacting his players to the USC compliance office. He wouldn't disclose the reasons for dismissing Holland, other than to say it wasn't, "along the lines you might suspect like breaking rules or laws or something like that."

Teammates indicated that Holland...was not always present at team meetings...
