Inside receiver A

Projected starter: K.D. Nixon

Nixon comes to USC as a transfer from Colorado with one year to improve his draft stock. He's a luxury addition in a Trojan offense already full of playmaking potential. Fortunately, he's had experience sharing an offense with elite players like Laviska Shenault and has the personality of a natural leader. He should fit right in as a veteran presence who is proven against Pac-12 defenses.

Rotation player: Gary Bryant Jr.

The downside of adding Nixon is likely seeing that much less of Bryant Jr. The speedster got a little bit of run in 2020 and he'll have to fight for every snap he gets in 2021. Ultimately, competition should bring out the best in athletes. He has the talent to push for playing time.
