USC adds to an already explosive and talented wide receiving group with Josh Jackson Jr. signing his letter of intent. USC football announced the signing through their twitter account early Wednesday morning.
The four star wide receiver out of Narbonne High School (Harbor City, CA) committed to USC back in March during the team spring showcase. Jackson held offers from Notre Dame, Tennessee, Florida, Oregon, Michigan, and Arizona State.
Jackson is ranked at the No. 72 wide receiver in the 2020 recruiting class, No. 39 in California, and No. 432 nationally according to the 247 Sports composite. During his junior season at Narbonne, the four star racked up a team leading 50 receptions for 915 yards and eight touchdowns. His numbers took a dip during his senior season with 37 receptions for 587 yards and four touchdowns.
Jackson will give offensive coordinator Graham Harrell and quarterback Kedon Slovis another weapon to the Trojans air raid offense that ranked in the top 20 during the 2019 season. He now joins Drake London, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Bruins McCoy, Munir McClain, John Jackson III and Kyle Ford in a loaded wide reciving core that is arguably the best in the Pac-12. They could also potentially have Tyler Vaughns should he forego the NFL Draft and return to USC. Jackson could've a chance to contribute early during Spring camp.
Jackson is the only position player to sign with USC in the 2020 recruiting class. He could potentially be joined by four star wide receivers Gary Bryant Jr. and LV Bunkley-Shelton, and Elijhah Badger as the Trojans await their decisions.
