Yesterday, USC Rivals reported that sophomore wide receiver Ajene Harris will miss the entire 2015 season after surgery on both hips this offseason.

Harris, a Los Angeles, California native, had four catches for 38 yards during his freshman campaign in 2014. Harris struggled to stay healthy as he battled hamstring injuries. He started against Oregon State and had three catches for 30 yards.

Although Harris didn't play a lot in 2014, he was going to be another option for quarterback Cody Kessler in 2015. The Trojans will already be without Nelson Agholor, Bryce Dixon, and George Farmer meaning that there will be a lot of fresh faces in the wide receiving group this year.

USC will welcome junior college transfers Isaac Whitney and De'Quan Hampton this summer. Both have already participated in player-ran workouts this summer.

After an incredible spring highlighted, Steven Mitchell should enter the fall camp as the number two receiver alongside JuJu Smith.

Although nothing is certain, there is always the chance that Harris could work his way back and play in the postseason bowl for the Trojans.
