Agholor-FallScrimmage-McG.jpgName - Nelson Agholor

Position - Wide Receiver

Class - Freshman

Size - 6'1", 193 lbs.

Age - 19

High School - Berkeley Prep (Tampa, FL)

Comparison - He is long and fluid in the physical mold of Damian Williams.  Agholor talked glowingly about learning from Robert Woods and Marqise Lee, but he is a different type of receiver than both of them.

Prep Career - He played mostly running back, which is hard to imagine given his frame, but he ran for 1,983 yards and 28 TDs on 212 carries as a senior.  He caught only 10 passes last year.

Fall Camp - Agholor flashed from the very first day, but he has hit the proverbial freshman wall recently.  He bounced back with a solid performance in the live portion of the fall scrimmage.  The freshman will compete for playing time from the outset.

To Quote Agholor - "I am here to help these guys out.  It would be wonderful to have a season like [Woods and Lee], but I am Nelson Agholor, and I am here to compete and help the Trojans do well this season."
