The USC Trojans and Lincoln Riley have added another talented wide receiver to an already loaded and young room.

According to Sports Illustrated, Richardson had committed to Cal back on December 20 but obviously has since rescinded that commitment as of the New Year and committed to USC.

Richardson, a converted safety, was a fourth-team All-American for the DIII program Tufts University. Over his last two seasons, he put up 87 catches, for 1,496 yards, and 20 touchdowns, 13 of those touchdowns coming in 2023. His 20 career touchdown receptions are a Tufts school record.

The USC Trojans demonstrated in the Holiday Bowl that they have a bevy of talent and youth at the WR position, but with Tahj Washington and Brenden Rice heading for the NFL Draft, and Mario Williams hitting the transfer portal, they did need to add at least one more player.

Jaden Richardson will have to fight for playing time, but he brings experience to a very young room.
