The USC Trojans landed the #5 ranked recruiting class in the Scout.com 2017 team rankings, but how does the wide receiver position rank compared to past 'SC classes?
Overview: The Trojans landed two wide receivers in the 2017 class; five-star Joseph Lewis and three-star Randal Grimes. Lewis is the fourth highest ranked WR to commit to the Trojans this decade.
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.
