USC has a star quarterback, talented running backs and a go-to wide receiver (Deontay Burnett). But do the Trojans have a consistent deep-threat wide receiver? That is the question I examine today.
Excerpt: With no wide receivers emerging as stars during training camp, it might make sense for defenses to force USC to prove it can throw deep. That would also be ideal for a defense because it could focus on stopping the run and short passes.
As is often the case at USC, the receivers’ recruiting rankings are currently ahead of their performances. During USC’s second scrimmage last week, there was frustration between Darnold and his young corps of receivers.
