Pundits expect Michael Jackson III to break out this season in the USC offense

The USC Trojans did lose a number of receivers in the offseason, but if there’s one position group where this team won’t suffer, it’s at receiver. Michael Jackson III will see to it.

The Trojans return Jackson with juniors Mario Williams, Tahj Washington, and Brenden Rice. They have added Arizona junior transfer Dorian Singer, who was an All-Pac-12 Second Team selection last season. They have a lot of quality players in this position group. Michael Jackson III could be the breakout star of the deepest WR room in the country.

Michael Jackson was a four-star prospect in the 2021 class from Desert Pines High in Las Vegas. He had 17 catches for 236 yards and four touchdowns in six late-season games for USC.

USC also brings in more competition at the receiver spot this year with four-star Makai Lemon and five-star Zachariah Branch, who is the No. 1 overall WR in his class.

Expect Jackson to be a deep-threat target and a favorite of 2023 Heisman Trophy Winner Caleb Williams this upcoming season.
