    Too hard to choose 3.

    And if I had to take Curtis Conway, Johnnie Morton and Steve Smith on my team, I wouldn’t be upset.

    Of these nine, I’d go with Williams, Johnson and Woods. But I think Jarrett doesn’t get as much attention as he deserves in these discussions, and I think Lee’s Biletnikoff season alone was enough to land him in anybody’s top three.

    It's hard to go wrong with BMW and Key as the first 2 options. I'm really debating the 3rd guy, though.

    Keyshawn was the number one overall pick for a reason. He was also the MVP in two consecutive bowl games, including an epic Rose Bowl. BMW was a man among boys. No brainer I would start with those two if talking purely what happened on the field in college. Probably Woods slightly over JuJu for the third spot, even though I rock a number nine home jersey at the Coli.

    Hi Erik,
    What are you’re thoughts on where Tyler V may end up on this list if he has a productive 2020? He’s only 64 balls away from breaking Woods all-time receptions record and just a 600yd receiving yards season would see him get into the 3000+ yard club which only half a doz are in.
    I know there’s a bunch of dudes lining up next to him that will get theirs next season, but without MP there he has the potential for a stand out season.
    Thanks & Fight On.

    I think Vaughns is a really good receiver, but I wouldn’t put him in that group unless he has an absolutely dominant season. He doesn’t yet have a 1,000-yard receiving season or more than six touchdown grabs in a year. All of those receivers listed could (and most did) win a game almost by themselves at some point. Vaughns has just two games with more than eight catches and just seven 100-yard games in three years.

    The all-time receptions record at USC is no small feat, so if Vaughns gets that this year it should absolutely be celebrated. But I think it says something that virtually everybody’s top-two USC receivers were only here for two years and I think these lists lean toward dominance rather than longevity.

    I like TV, but I've not seen anything that suggests he is capable of sustained dominance. I don't think he comes close to sniffing the first round come draft time next year. Hope I'm wrong though.

    Sorry, Soward was all hype and disappointment for me.

    I'd have Smith, Conway, and Morton ahead of Agholor. I think I stick with Lee at third behind Keyshawn and BMW. He was an amazing athlete, but I feel like he just lacked some sort of clutchiness, smoothness, and route-running polish we saw in receivers like Woods and Smith. I love JuJu, but I wonder if we're being blinded by his NFL performances; in college, he seemed to be hobbled a lot -- he was a warrior, but I recall he never got great separation.

    1st string - Williams, Johnson & Lee
    2nd string - Jarrett, Woods & Swann
    3rd string - S. Smith, Agholor & Morton

    Deep Bench (lol) - Pittman, Conway, Smith-Schuster, Colbert, Affholter & Soward

    Closest I can come to a decision:

    1) BMW - most dominant receiver I can recall ever seeing;
    2) Key - right up there in terms of being able to dominate and win games by himself; and
    3) JuJu OR Woods - too close to call. Both unbelievably clutch with the ability to get it done despite anything and everything. Think of the catches JuJu made in the Rose Bowl against Penn State - he was unstoppable and simply could not be denied. Woods did the same.

    Soward, Lee, Agholor and others may have oozed talent, but I wouldn’t put them at the same level as those listed above.

    I think St. Brown will take over Pittman's role as the Number One receiver.

    Keys, mike williams, and jarret because he was part of that great run, and he did make one of the great plays in sc history. He also put of solid numbers.

    There was never quite the deep threat for USC that was George Katrib.
