The USC football program kicked off its weekend winning big on the recruiting trail.
On Saturday afternoon, five-star wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown announced he will be staying home and playing for the Trojans. Brown chose USC over Notre Dame and Stanford, where his older brothers Equanimeous and Osiris play.
Brown made his announcement with a video on social media.

Brown is the No. 12 overall recruit and No. 2 ranked pass catcher in the nation, according to 247 Sports. He was the top recruit in the state of California, where he tarred at Mater Dei High School.
At USC, Brown will join his high school quarterback, five-star prospect JT Daniels, who reclassified from 2019 to 2018 and could be an early favorite to replace Sam Darnold under center. Redshirt freshman Matt Fink and true freshman Jack Sears will also be in the mix.
Whoever wins the starting quarterback job will have a talented pass catcher on the outside.
