USC WR St. Brown headed to draft
Receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown is headed to the NFLdraft after three seasons at Southern California. St. Brown announced his expected decision Saturday. The speedy, sure-handed receiver is the fifth key underclassman in the past week from the 21st-ranked Trojans (5-1) to declare their intention to enter the draft. St. Brown had 41 catches for 478 yards and seven touchdowns this season, the Orange County native’s third as a key receiver in the USC offense. He racked up 178 receptions for 2,270 yards and 16 touchdowns in his career with the Trojans. He joins All-American safety Talanoa Hufanga, defensive lineman Marlon Tuipulotu, offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker and cornerback Olaijah Griffin in heading to the NFL after the Trojans won the Pac-12 South this season and lost to Oregon in the conference title game before declining to play in a bowl game. Defensive lineman Jay Tufele already opted out of the delayed 2020 season to prepare for the draft.
