Marqise Lee became the most recent Trojan to be honored with All-American status in 2012, and today, his athletic accomplishments have been enshrined in the form of a plaque on All-American Walk, a wall that honors USC’s all-time greatest Trojans.
As a sophomore, Lee had 118 receptions for 1721 yards and 14 touchdowns en route to becoming not only a consensus Al-American, but also USC’s first ever Biletnikoff award winner. His most prolific performance came in the Trojans’ loss to Arizona where he torched the Wildcats for 345 yards and 2 touchdowns from 16 receptions.
“I have a lot of work to do, and I am going to step up to it, to make sure that I live up to being on the wall,” Lee said of his accomplishment.
Lee is expected to lead USC’s aerial assault in 2013, this time aided by young Trojans Nelson Agholor and Steven Mitchell, among others.
He and the rest of the team return to Howard Jones Field on Tuesday at 4 p.m. to resume spring camp, having had a week off for spring break. Before the break, Lee had sat out a week of practice because of having dinged his knee in USC’s first scrimmage of camp. He has since received the green light, and is expected to participate in drills today.
