The USC Trojans wide receiving group is viewed as one of the best in College Football heading in to the 2019 season. The amount of talent is just outstanding and with Graham Harrell’s air raid system being implemented, the potential is very exciting to watch. One player in that group is receiving some praise.
Sophomore wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown is coming into this season with some big expectations and now has received some attention with it. USA Today Sports released their top ten wide receivers heading into the 2019 season Wednesday afternoon. The sophomore made their top ten ranking. Incase you’re wondering where St. Brown is exactly ranked, he sits at No. 10 on the list.
St. Brown is ranked with receivers such as Alabama’s Judy Jones, Colorado’s Laviska Shenault, and Clemson’s Tee Higgins. Paul Myerberg shared the following on the USC receiver and why he made his list.
St. Brown had a productive freshman season after coming in with a lot of praise and hype. In 11 games played, he had team leading 60 receptions for 750 yards and 3 touchdowns. St. Brown was second on the team in receiving yards behind Michael Pittman Jr. One factor that was his already established chemistry with quarterback JT Daniels from their time at Mater Dei. The two connected quite a few times during the season. Brown always seemed to be in the right spots for Daniels.
With Graham Harrell taking over the offense, St. Brown production should increase. He was by far the best receiver during spring camp. Like most of the USC receivers, St. Brown will gel very well in the new offense where it allows for playmakers to make plays in space. The potential for the sophomore to be a top ten receiver is there.
