USC May Have Found Their Next Great Wide Receiver--Nelson Agholar

Trojans fans are likely pretty familiar with sophomore wide receiver Nelson Agholar. They know he has some skills and have enjoyed watching him play No. 2 to Marqise Lee this season, and stepping up to be the No. 1 when Lee was hurt. The rest of the nation may not be too familiar with him.

That is, until now.

Lee will be playing for an NFL team next fall so USC is going to need someone else to step up and takeover the role as the No. 1 target for the Trojans passing game. Agholar's body of work over the course of the season will have him in the conversation of course, but his performance in just the first half of the Las Vegas Bowl may have ended the discussion.

With four minutes to go he already has four catches for 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns; one a 40-yard reception to give the Trojans a 14-6 lead and the second a controversial 17-yard grab where he appears to trap the ball against his shoulder pad to get it under control before stepping out of bounds.
