Second verse, same as the first: another blue-chip Florida prospect has elected to follow Lane Kiffin to the West Coast.

This time it's top athlete Nelson Agholor, who chose to sign with USC over Florida, Florida State and Notre Dame. A consensus five-star prospect (including at Maxpreps) from Berkeley Prep in Tampa, the 6'2", 185-pound Agholor is ranked No. 13 overall in the Maxpreps top 100 and the No. 1 athlete in the class.

Though Agholor could also have a professional future in the defensive backfield, he is expected to play wide receiver for the Trojans.

"I love to opportunity to play alongside Marqise Lee and Robert Woods," he said in his televised announcement. "I really dealt with some great people over there."

From Tom Lemming's evaluation of Agholor for Maxpreps:
Before I got to Tampa everyone was talking about Mr. Agholor. Like Shaq Roland, he has what it takes to become an outstanding WR or DB at the next level and also a punt and kickoff return specialist. He makes everything look easy and is a natural athlete ... On defense shows terrific instincts, quick reactions, reads quarterbacks well, shows superior quickness, can turn his hips, and has the height, leaping ability, and smooth backpedal to dominate receivers. On the other side of the ball he's a sure handed receiver with all the way kind of speed, and he uses his balance, instincts, and agility that he uses on the defensive side of the ball.
The Trojans' 2012 class currently ranks 12th in the CBS Sports National Signing Day Top 25 but should be due for a move up after the additions of Agholor, Leonard Williams, and Devian Shelton

Well if you hate Lane Kiffin you may as well clean off your hater shades.  We just landed another 4 star CB as the 16th recruit and we have one more spot open I believe? It is really amazing that USC can out recruit all but less than ten teams in the nation while under sanctions.

And in the end they will still be underachieving and mediocre.  Enjoy the ranked recruiting classes of big head, me- first clowns, and simply rank seasons.  Remember, your coach is still Lame Kitten.

Second verse consistent with past USC cheating:  And I am sure he is being well paid to go to USC and its slimy coach Kiffin.  Then again, USC must see the laughable "penalties" handed down to Ohio State "University" and its criminal-recruiting, rules-skirting Coach Meyer and knonw that the money gained from cheating is far greater than whatever slap on the wrist the National Crooks' Athletic Abomination gave it as part of its lip service hypocrisy.

Oh where to begin....how about idiot? I'll just go with uninformed jealous morron. It must suck to be you...get a life.

NCAA angry that USC is doing so well.

And, UCLA got a QB.  It's about time.

Chris,

as of right now....USC has three spots left in the 2012 class to fill (Murphy?, Shittu?, Treggs or Diggs??) assuming Rogers stays with his commitment. Breslin, Star and Wheeler were early enrolees against 2011 as was transfer Shaw and greayshirt (MCL injury) Wilson.

As a Miami fan, happy for Nelso Agholor especially with the other schools that he was considered.  Since he went to USC, the U won't have to even worry about seeing this kid.  Congrats to USC on the pickup!

USC's not going to miss a beat. Still under sanctions, this team will compete strongly for a Pac-10 and national title. FIGHT ON
