USC WR rated too high:  George Farmer

USC WR rated too low: Deontay Burnett

USC WR notes:  The highest rated prospect to commit to the Trojans this decade was WR Robert Woods (#3 overall/2010).  Arguably two of the best receivers to come through 'SC were projected safeties by Scout.com; Marquise Lee and Juju Smith-Schuster.  65% of the receivers came from SoCal high schools.   Three from Serra H.S (Gardena, CA); Woods, Burnett, Farmer. This does not include Marqise Lee or part-time WR, Adoree' Jackson.
