USC has received the signed letter of intent from four-star wide receiver Rahshead Johnson (Long Beach, Calif./Cabrillo).
When Johnson gave his verbal commitment at the 2014 Army All-American Bowl, he expressed the intention of stepping in as a cornerback.
However, the multipurpose Johnson managed to haul in 47 receptions for 562 receiving yards in his senior season, and thus he is joining the Trojans with the notion that his services may also be required on the offensive side of the ball.
Johnson grew up a Trojans fan, but it was the Washington Huskies who held his commitment for a lengthy period of time.
It was far from smooth sailing though as Johnson de-committed from the Huskies on two occasions, with the final one coming after Steve Sarkisian was announced as head coach at USC.
The process then unfolded quickly as within a span of a month, Johnson received a scholarship offer from Sarkisian at USC and was a verbal pledge to join the Trojans’ 2014 class.
Johnson held scholarship offers from Arizona, Arizona State and Wisconsin, among others.
Rivals ranks Johnson as the No. 19 wide receiver in the 2014 and the No. 13 player in the state of California.
