USC assistant coach Tee Martin believes sophomore WR Nelson Agholor benefited from being teammates with Robert Woods and Marqise Lee.
Woods was a second-rounder in 2013, while Lee will be a first-round pick in May. All three, including Agholor, were recruited to Los Angeles by Lane Kiffin. "Nelson is the consummate pro when you are talking about preparation, studying the game, the leader in the room," said Martin. Agholor will begin to draw attention from pro scouts next season. He led USC with 918 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 2013. Feb 3 - 9:20 PM

USC sophomore WR Nelson Agholor hauled in four catches for 35 yards and also returned two punts for touchdowns in Saturday's win against California.

The Trojans led 41-14 at halftime due to an NCAA-record-tying three punt returns for touchdowns. Agholor scored on returns of 75 and 93 yards. Junior safety Josh Shaw scored on a 14-yard block punt return. Agholor's pair of TD returns tied the school record held by Heisman Trophy winner and former athletic director Mike Garrett.

USC sophomore WR Nelson Agholor hauled in seven catches for 161 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 38-31 victory over Arizona.

Without Marqise Lee around to hog any targets, Agholor kicked off the scoring by snagging a 62-yard Cody Kessler touchdown pass. Much was expected of Agholor this season, but this was the first time he's cracked 65 receiving yards in 2013. Hopefully tonight will mark a breakthrough in Agholor's career, but don't count on it. He caught six balls for 162 yards against Oregon last season and only reached 50 yards one other time.

USC sophomore WR Nelson Agholor continued his excellent offseason, hauling in nine catches for 250 yards and three touchdowns during the school's mock game on Wednesday.

Junior Marqise Lee went down with a right shoulder injury after diving for a pass, which is the same shoulder that was hurt a few days ago. The injury was labeled a bone bruise at the time. Agholor has stepped up since Robert Woods departed for the NFL, and seems to be a top target for both quarterbacks in competition for the starting job.

USC sophomore Nelson Agholor is projected to start at WR opposite Marqise Lee.

Agholor played in all 13 games in 2012, even starting three contests, and recorded 19 catches for 340 yards and two touchdowns. "Playing alongside (Lee) is a wonderful opportunity," Agholor said. "But just having him there doesn't guarantee that I'm going to make plays. It's up to me to make it happen."

Coach Lane Kiffin likes Nelson Agholor, who will enroll this fall, as both a tailback and receiver.

Kiffin thinks enough of Agholor’s skill and mindset that the soon-to-be-freshman can learn what it takes to make it work at both positions. The coach also likens his maturity level to that of receiver Robert Woods. With Tre Madden felled by a knee injury that will cost him the 2012 season, Agholor is the guy that could fill the duel-role Madden was slated for.

Nelson Agholor, one of the state of Florida's top recruits, signed with USC.

Agholor, listed as a top-50 player on many boards, was a running back (1,983 yards last season) at Berkley Prep in Tampa. He will be a receiver at USC, where he follows in the footsteps of Robert Woods, Marqise Lee and George Farmer when it comes to wideouts from the Sunshine State who chose to go cross country to SoCal.
