No. 2 freshman poised to make an immediate impact for USC football in 2022: Raleek Brown

Raleek Brown has the chance to find many different ways to get on the field for USC football this year. A four-star running back who ranked as the No. 3 back in the 2022 recruiting class, he's phenomenal as a runner. He can also run wide receiver type routes, however, excelling out wide at some of these notable high school camps.

Riley likes to be creative offensively, and giving him a player this versatile could be massive. He could use him as an RB, a WR, or an H-Back. He can flex him out wherever he wants due to his speed and athleticism that he showed at Mater Dei. He was the No. 2 recruit in the state of California for a reason.

He was committed to Riley before Riley was at SC for a reason, as well. He knows how well he fits in a flexible and creative spread like Riley's, and he wanted nothing to do with an Oklahoma that didn't have Riley at the helm. Brown wants to work with Riley, and Riley wants to work with Brown.
