    Per TOS,

    The 6'0'', 200 lbs, 5* RB recruit out of Tucson, AZ (Salpointe Catholic), will make his choice on August 2nd via his Instagram account. His final 3 choices will be between Ohio State, Texas, and USC with most recruiting analysts believing Ohio State to be the favorites to land the #4 ranked RB and #22 ranked player overall in the 2020 class. Bijan has stated that he grew up idolizing former USC RB Reggie Bush and he has family in the Los Angeles area, but due to the uncertain future of USC's current coaching staff, it may be a factor in where he chooses to play college football. Ohio State and Texas are also recruiting his teammate, 4* DB recruit Lathan Ransom who will make his college choice on July 16th. Ransom's final 3 include Ohio State, Texas, and Notre Dame. It is unclear if both players have talked about becoming a package deal for either of their final schools, but recruiting analysts also have Ransom going to Ohio State as well.

    I'm a big believer in this position group. I think Carr has been snakebit and will take a huge jump this year. The Hawaiian and Stepp should both be #1 back quality and the freshman might be an impact player

    I just hope they all can stay healthy. The offense is going to need all four of them to contribute.

    If the Coaching staff is a factor, then I'd say an Aug 2nd announcement date doesn't bode well for SC.

    The thing is we really control our recruiting destiny with our performance this season. 10-3 with a pac 12 title? We'll have a top 7 class. 7-5 and no south title? It'll be bad.

    It’s not over until signing day, but it does become more difficult to flip someone than get the commitment up front.

    I’m hearing he’s eliminated Tosu from consideration...could the Trojans be back in play??

    Hmmm

    Told you a month ago

    Bijan gave Texas a silent.
    He played with Ohio State.

    Hopefully we can flip him during the season

    His family is moving to Eugene.
    Looks suspicious but whatever.

    Overrated player.
    25 WRs better than him this year at least.
    Won't even be a top 100 player by December

    I like his size but his athleticism isn't something that you can't find elsewhere.

    A lot of those offers were when he looked like the best WR in this class.
    He was passed up and is being passed up by more.

    Wouldn't turn him away but he isn't a big loss.

    Truthfully want USC to go with the WRs who create separation by being shifty against the bigger CBs.
    The Amon Ra St Brown's
    Like I have said numerous times I want SC to mirror the NFL and that is what NFL is going with

    Erik said it best regarding his size.
    He doesn't play like he is 6-6.
    Year ago I would have said he was the best WR in Southern California
    Don't think that anymore.

    The one I am really interested in is LV Bunkley Shelton
    Hoping that our connection with Serra can keep him home.

    He plays much bigger than his size.
    He is only 5-11.
    The guy cannot be covered.

    I agree with you on Wilson, don’t think he would be passing anyone of the guys on our current roster for playing time.

    I do have a question for you with LVBS. If you had to compare him to someone who would you say? With his skill set can he be better on the other side of the ball? Just curious.

    For former USC WRs

    Maybe Steve Smith

    Don't think he is the same athletically but he makes up for it by being quicker than everyone.
    They need to test him playing football compared to everyone else.
    Plus he has strong hands. Can pretty much catch anything.


    I think he tries to pattern his game after Odell Beckham Jr.

    But once again I don't think he has the athleticism when they have tested him.

    Another slot WR who didn't have the athleticism but had great hands is Wes Welker


    He is a WR.
    Maybe the coaches see him somewhere else but I don't.

    Doesn't fit anywhere in the secondary expect maybe Nickelback.
