Harris, 'USC is where I always wanted to go'

Scout has confirmed Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw athlete Ajene Harris has faxed his National Letter of Intent to USC...

Harris is in
Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw athlete Ajene Harris flipped his commitment from San Diego State to USC after interim coach Ed Orgeron extended a Trojan offer.

Harris quarterbacked his Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw high school team, however the Trojans will look to use him as a slot receiver under the tutelage of receivers coach (and former quarterback) Tee Martin.

Harris admitted when he pledged to the Trojans that he was 'stunned' by the offer from USC and wanted to talk with his parents before making his commitment official.

It was a quick conversation, and there was no doubt in his or his families mind that USC was where he wanted to be.

Harris is a Scout three-star receiver.

Harris' impact
The Trojans are trying to build depth in their 2014 receiving corps after losing Marqise Lee early to the NFL draft.

It's a bit early to say it's a deep position for the Trojans, however with George Farmer and Steven Mitchell returning from ACL injuries, a future logjam is foreseeable.

Harris will most likely play a role in fall practices, however, he may not see significant time behind the likes of Nelson Agholor, Darreus Rogers, Farmer, and Mitchell in the coming season.
