It was a beautiful option play where QB Caleb Williams seemed to hold on to the ball until the very last second possible, but ended up reading the defender to where he'd hand it off, and watch Brown dance his way to a highlight-reel touchdown. To celebrate the Reggie-esque highlight, Brown hit the Coli with a Heisman pose:
And why shouldn't he? The type of players who make plays at that level as true freshmen tend to be future Heisman-caliber players. Brown was dead to rights when he got the ball, and being hit by the defender at the same exact time he was handed the rock. He responded by just turning on the jets and not only escaping, but picking up another 14 yards for the score.
USC football is deep at RB with Raleek Brown as the third-string guy.
That's because USC Football RB Raleek Brown is FAR from a typical third-string guy...He proved it in the first half, already having three carries for 21 yards and a score. He was tied for the team lead in carries. Clearly, with highlights like these, Brown is trusted by Riley for a reason. Coming in as the No. 3 RB in the entire 2022 class (all recruiting rankings and ratings in article are as of 247Sports), who can blame Riley?
Not only that, but Brown was the No. 2 player in the entire state of California, as the Mater Dei product was the No. 42 recruit in all of America. A running back who also has ran beautiful receiver routes on film, he's got a bright future at SC. Maybe he wears No. 14 because if you add 1 + 4, you get a Reggie. You get a Heisman. Well, Brown at LEAST most definitely has the pose down.
