USC football: Matt Barkley to reveal decision at news conference
Barkley, who led USC to a 10-2 record this season, is projected as a top pick in the April draft.
The junior from Newport Beach is the last of four prominent Trojans juniors to announce his plans.
All-American left tackle Matt Kalil and defensive end Nick Perry are turning pro. All-American safety T.J. McDonald announced Wednesday that he would return for his senior season.
This will be the third time since 2005 that USC will hold a press conference to announce a quarterback's decision.
In 2005, Matt Leinart said he would return to USC. In 2009, Mark Sanchez announced he would enter the NFL draft.
