Something intriguing for USC fans to see is that Offord trains with 2025 USC commit Anquon Fegans. The tweet below is from the pair training together just early today.

Na’eem Offord scouting report

“Twitchy, highly coordinated athlete who projects as one of the top defensive back prospects in the 2025 cycle. Has plus stature and length, measuring in at close to 6-foot-1, 180-pounds with a 6-foot-7 wing-span prior to his junior season. Registered as one of the top athletes on the spring camp circuit, posting an 11’1” broad jump and an electronically-timed 4.59 second 40-yard dash (pulled up midway through) at Under Armour’s Atlanta camp. 

“Is a two-way star on Friday nights, making plays on offense as a receiver and ball carrier while doubling as a cornerback. Rarely tested on defense, but shows his considerable athleticism and plus ball skills on offense. Very fluid and surprisingly polished in defensive back drills in the camp setting. Looks to have notable upside at defensive back once he focuses on the position full-time.”
