USC loses top WR Puka Nacua to Washington
USC football continues to take major hits in the recruiting world.
A week after one of their 2020 wide receiver commits decommitted, the Trojans lost a former wide receiver commit to another school.
Puka Nacua, a four-star recruit and the No. 1 recruit in Utah according to 247 Sports, announced on Sunday night that he was committing to the Washington Huskies.
Nacua committed to USC in June but still took visits elsewhere. He was considering BYU, Oregon, UCLA and Utah in addition to USC and Washington.
Nacua had 5,270 career receiving yards and 57 touchdowns in high school, according to his MaxPreps page. He had 103 catches for 2,336 yards and 26 touchdowns as a senior.
While this is a big pickup for the Huskies, what seems even more significant is the trend this continues for USC. In early January, Kliff Kingsbury left as offensive coordinator to become the Arizona Cardinals’ head coach. In mid-January, they lost running back Jordan Wilmore, who committed to Utah. Two weeks later, top recruit Bru McCoy transferred to Texas after briefly enrolling at USC. Last week, 2020 wide receiver Koy Moore decommitted from the program. And now it’s Nacua changing from USC to Washington.
Trojans fans were calling for Clay Helton’s firing months ago and Lynn Swann didn’t abide their wishes. They will continue to be upset after all of this.
