    2016: Burnett will battle for key playing time at wide receiver as a sophomore in 2016.

    2015: He was a reserve wide receiver as a first-year freshman at USC in 2015. Overall in 2015 while appearing in 12 games (all but Arkansas State and Stanford), he caught 10 passes for 161 yards (16.1 average). He had a 10-yard catch against Idaho, then 3 receptions for 53 yards at Notre Dame, 3 grabs for 82 yards at California, a catch for minus 6 yards against Arizona, a 9-yard reception versus UCLA and a 13-yard catch versus Wisconsin. He enrolled at USC in the fall of 2015 and was awarded a scholarship by virtue of an NCAA rule known as “blueshirting” (it allows a non-recruited student-athlete to receive athletic financial aid after beginning practice and have that student-athlete count towards the next year’s signing class if the school has reached its NCAA-maximum aid limit for the current year).

    HIGH SCHOOL: He made 2014 South Bay Daily Breeze All-South Bay second team and All-Mission League first team as a senior wide receiver at Serra High in Gardena (Calif.). He had 27 receptions for 545 yards (20.2 avg) with 5 TDs in 2014.

    As a junior in 2013, he had 12 catches for 186 yards (15.5 avg) with 2 TDs.

    He completed 8-of-11 passes (72.7%) for 65 yards with 1 TD and ran for 25 yards on 6 carries (4.2 avg) as a 2012 sophomore. Current Trojans Adoree’ Jackson, Olajuwon Tucker, Jalen Greene, Jalen Jones, Rasheem Green, John Houston Jr., Caleb Wilson, Oluwole Betiku and C.J. Pollard also prepped at Serra.

    PERSONAL: He is a communication major at USC.
