Three-star receiver Kris Hutson announced his commitment to USC football’s 2020 recruiting class on Thursday, doubling the Trojans pledges for the future cycle.

More. 5 Media Day Takeaways

When Wednesday began, USC football had zero commits for their 2020 class. By Thursday afternoon, the Trojans added a second pledge to the group.

Three-star wide receiver Kris Hutson tweeted his commitment to USC with a simple declaration: “1000% committed.”

He joins five-star quarterback Bryce Young from Mater Dei, who announced his commitment to the Trojans on Wednesday evening.

Hutson received a scholarship offer from USC in early June and it took him just a month of consideration to jump on the opportunity to become a Trojan.

A 5-foot-10, 170-pound junior receiver from St. John Bosco, Hutson doesn’t have a rating in the 247Sports composite yet. He does rank 334rd nationally in 247Sports individual measure, 68th among receivers and 37th in California.

He had just 33 receptions for 456 yards and three touchdowns for the Braves as a sophomore, but his role is expected to increase in 2018. If he follows through on a promising offseason, his star is likely to rise.

USC isn’t hurting for wide receivers just yet, but by 2020 the position group should look quite different than it does now. Tyler Vaughns, Michael Pittman, Velus Jones and most of the current receiving corps will be out of college eligibility.

The Trojans have bolstered the position with Amon-Ra St. Brown and Devon Williams this year while the 2019 class is already shaping up to be receiver heavy, with Puka Nacua, Drake London and Munir McClain already committed.

There’s still a long way to go before Hutson or Young put pen to paper for USC in 2020, but the class of 2019 is on the horizon with 10 commits on board as the summer stretches on.
