The Trojans' 2016 recruiting class just becomes scarier and stronger by the commitment of Trevon Sidney. Today at The Opening Finals, Trevon Sidney committed to USC over Notre Dame, Tennessee, UCLA, Washington, and Wisconsin.
The 5'10 160 pound athlete plays cornerback and receiver at Bishop Amat High School, but USC recruited him primarily as a receiver. Sidney will join a special group of receivers led by wide receivers coach Tee Martin. Sidney's speed, route running, and willingness to fight for the ball and extra yards are a X-factor that separates him from the pack in the 2016 class. He can be used as an outside receiver to challenge opposing receivers or as an inside slot to become a nightmare against linebackers, safeties, and nickel backs. Sidney is ranked as the No.11 wide receiver in the nation according to 247Sports composite rankings.
The Trojans have done a great job recruiting an explosive offensive unit. Sidney joins a dangerous 2016 commitment class on offense that includes dual quarterback Matt Fink, speedster receiver Velus Jones, 4-star receiver Josh Imatorbhebhe, and elusive all-purpose back Melquise Stovall.
