USA Today listed its 10 top wide receivers for this season and Amon-Ra St. Brown was No. 10. I don’t even think St. Brown was USC’s best receiver last season. That was Michael Pittman.
St. Brown got awfully quiet at one five-game stretch last season despite JT Daniels‘ fixation with him.
Look at the numbers:
Washington State: 2 receptions for 38 yards
Arizona: 5 receptions for 54 yards
Colorado: 4 receptions for 31 yards
Arizona State: 4 receptions for 39 yards
Oregon State: 5 receptions for 39 yards
That’s a top 10 receiver in the nation?
- Former Michigan QB Brandon Peters announced he would transfer to Illinois. Maybe Matt Fink got wind of this when he decided to remain at USC.
- The May, 2019, local radio ratings are out and USC’s new flagship station, KABC-AM (790), tied for 38th, which is dead last. The other stations at the bottom were KDLD-FM (103.1); KFWB-AM (980) and KKLA-FM (99.5). Two of those stations (KDLD, KKLA) are not even English language and KFWB is a religious station.
