The USC Trojans football recruiting path is carving up teams like their Air Raid offense does to opposing defenses as of late. Head coach Clay Helton and Co. picked up another big-time recruit this weekend with 4-star WR Quaydarius Davis pledging his services to the Trojans.
Davis, who goes by Quay, is 6’0, 193 and represents a true yards-after-the-catch threat. He’s the 17th-ranked receiver on the 247Sports Composite and the 105th-best player in the country. Hailing from Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas, he also represents the 10th commitment to USC for the class of 2021 and the second offensive skill player from the state of Texas to pledge to the Trojans.
Largely seen as one of the top receivers in this class, Davis’ highlights are extensive and truly a sight to see. In fact, Rivals.com has Davis as the 21st-best prospect in the country and these highlights will show you why:
Davis had previously committed to Texas, for a large portion of 2019, but backed off that commitment in November, only to reveal on May 1 that he’s a solid commit to USC without even seeing campus. Due to coronavirus, his plans to visit USC have been placed on hold and he’ll want to get out as soon as he can.
He told Rivals earlier this year that he ‘has got to get out to see (the campus)’ so for him to commit without being able to speaks volumes to Helton and Keary Colbert’s ability to recruit virtually this offseason.
The USC recruiting class for 2021 is taking the nation by storm and has officially cracked the top 10 overall recruiting classes on each of the recruiting services. 247Sports has USC ranked No. 7 nationally while Rivals has them at No. 6 overall.
That’s quite a haul so far and quite a ranking to date, something that is extremely promising for not only the future of the program, but for the future of Helton’s job as the head coach.
Now, all he has to do is turn these recruiting wins into wins on the field.
Easier said than done, right?
