Southern California has granted forward Garrett Jackson permission to transfer.

Coach Kevin O'Neill said Wednesday that Jackson ''did a great job'' for two years and is free to contact other schools. The sophomore from Portland, Ore., plans to remain enrolled through the end of the semester.

Jackson averaged 6.9 points and 3.1 rebounds in 32 games this season, including the final 14 as a starter.

USC finished 6-26, setting a school record for losses.
