A daily three-point briefing, recapping the news and notes of USC athletics. Today it’s another look at just how good Drake London has been, a big-time grab from Michael Pittman Jr. and the 2021-22 hoops schedule for the Women of Troy.
Drake London has been feasting on opposing defenses this season. Six games into the season, he has 64 receptions for 832 yards. The No. 2 player in the conference in receptions has 40. The No. 2 player in the conference in receiving yards has 404. That gap will close this week with the Trojans on a bye, but it’s easy to see London finishing the season easily on top of both those lists.
The Draft Network has London going No. 8 overall in the next NFL Draft. PFF College has London as the highest-graded receiver in the country.
