USC football flipped Oregon WR commit Kyron Ware-Hudson to stay home
Kyron Ware-Hudson delivered a birthday present to his mother on Monday that will make USC football fans feel like it’s their party as well.
The Mater Dei wide receiver flipped his commitment from Oregon to USC, becoming the Trojans’ 22nd pledge in the class of 2021.
Ware-Hudson called 2020 and “unforgettable year” in his message posted to Twitter. He complimented Oregon’s Mario Cristobal for the path he has the Ducks on, but also acknowledged the ties pulling him back home.
“This year has given me a lot to reflect on and made me realize how important my family is to me, as well as following my own path in life,” Ware-Hudson wrote. “So today, on my mother’s BIRTHDAY, I feel there’s no better present than to let her know that I will be staying home!!!”
Kyron Ware-Hudson is a needed addition for USC football at WR
Standing 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, Ware-Hudson is one of the top prospects in the class of 2021. He ranks No. 123 among players overall and No. 11 in California, per the 247Sports composite.
Greg Biggins of 247Sports credited him as “one of the strongest receivers in the country who can bully opposing corners.”
Ware-Hudson is the third wide receiver commit for USC in the class, joining four-star Quaydarius Davis and three-star Michael Jackson.
In addition to Ware-Hudson’s talents being an obvious draw, the Trojans need help at the wide receiver spot. Sure, USC is loaded with talent, but depth for the unit has been sorely lacking, especially for an Air Raid attack.
CHECK OUT: USC vs. Wazzu moved to Sunday
Ware-Hudson and company will help USC cope with the impending loss of Amon-Ra St. Brown and Tyler Vaughns, should they choose not to return in 2021.
USC recently lost cornerback Philip Riley to decommitment when he flipped back to Notre Dame. The Trojans are now No. 7 nationally and No. 2 in the Pac-12 in 247Sports composite team rankings.
