Virginia’s starting offensive left tackle Bobby Haskins will finish his football career for Lincoln Riley at Southern Cal.

Haskins made the announcement on his Twitter account Sunday evening. He is one of three veteran offensive linemen from Virginia to have entered the transfer portal. Right tackle Ryan Swoboda and center Olusegun Oluwatimi also entered the portal. Oluwatimi, who was a Rimington Award finalist as the best offensive lineman in the country, has visited Michigan.

Haskins released this statement on his account:

“The last four years being a Virginia football player have been the most rewarding of my entire life. I am forever grateful for the relationships I have been fortunate enough to build with my teammates, coaches, athletic trainers, equipment staff, and athletic staff members. For the rest of my life I will be proud to call myself a Virginia football player. With that being said, I am incredibly blessed and excited to put everything I have into my last year of college football playing for Coach Riley at the University of Southern California. Fight on!”

Haskins was a regular starter on Virginia’s offense and graded out at 92 percent overall, 94 percent for run plays and 91 percent for pass plays. He allowed zero pressures from his left tackle spot and posted seven pancake blocks against Duke that earned him ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors.

Haskins was All-ACC honorable mention.
