The USC Trojans grab a key commit to its 2020 recruiting class. Four-star wide receiver Joshua Jackson Jr. announced his commitment to the Trojans. The announcement came via Jackson Jr’s twitter account on Saturday afternoon and through a live periscope stream.

Jackson Jr. is rated as a four-star and is ranked No. 28 at the wide receiver position in the 2020 class according to the 247 Sports composite. He’s also the No. 57 overall player in the state of California. The 6-foot-2, 185 pound wide receiver out of Narbonne High School in Harbor City, California gives the Trojans a huge need early on in the 2020 recruiting class, after losing the commits of two four-star wide receivers earlier in the year. During his junior season at Narbonne, Jackson Jr. tallied 50 receptions for 915 yards and eight touchdowns according to Max Preps.

Jackson Jr. was in attendance for the Trojans’ first scrimmage of spring camp at the time of his commit. It was fitting that his announcement came from the USC campus. His commitment to the Trojans has fellow USC commit Bryce Young and freshman wide receiver Kyle Ford excited.

USC’s 2020 recruiting class now sits at three with the addition of Jackson Jr. Five-star Mater Dei (CA) quarterback Bryce Young and two-star Saguaro (AZ) kicker Parker Lewis already are apart of the Trojans recruiting class with verbal commitments. With five USC wide receivers transferring, Tyler Vaughns and Michael Pittman Jr. being draft eligible, and the addition of the “Air Raid” offense, the Trojans must stock up on wide receivers in the 2020 class.
