USC adds transfer receiver from Division III program

Here at Fighting Irish Wire we certainly like to keep a watchful eye on the happenings around Notre Dame’s biggest rival, USC.

On Tuesday, Lincoln Riley and the Trojans dipped into the transfer portal and added a wide receiver. Not just any wide receiver though; this one was from the Division III ranks.

Jaden Richardson stands 6 feet, 2 inches and weighs 210 pounds, and announced his intent to transfer to Southern Cal. He is coming off a year in which he produced 13 touchdowns and 830 receiving yards.

Richardson is a California native, albeit the northern part of the state. He had committed to Cal roughly two weeks ago before making his change of plans known on Tuesday.

Notre Dame will travel to Los Angeles to take on USC and Richardson in the 2024 regular-season finale.
