    WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT JUJU SMITH

    Jake Davidson, Daily Trojan: “JuJu Smith is a physical phenom with the potential to go down as the best Trojan receiver ever. His rare mix of speed and power combined with a penchant for elusive moves is truly remarkable.”

    Jeremy Shapiro, ESPN.com: He is a mismatch for defenses—too fast for safeties and too strong for most corners.”

    USC head coach Steve Sarkisian: “JuJu exudes so much energy. Every play is the most important play to him. That’s why he’s a great leader, and his teammates recognize it.”
