Personal Life

Makai Lemon has a special bond with his teammate and fellow USC commitment Malachi Nelson that stretches years into the past and looks to continue years into the future. “(We’ve) just got super close,” Lemon said about his bond with Nelson. “Our families got close. (We’ve) stuck together as a duo through Pop Warner.” Lemon connected with the Five-Star Plus+ quarterback for more than 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2021 after racking up 756 yards and nine scores in the spring 2021 season. “They’re like twins,” Los Alamitos coach Ray Fenton told the Long Beach Press-Telegram. “They can finish each other’s sentence.” The connection is so strong that both Lemon and Nelson were committed to Oklahoma with each other at one point. Now they’re both pledged to USC. Lemon’s parents are Brandy and Mike Lemon. Lemon played his freshman season at La Mirada.
