USC has been looking into the NCAA Transfer Portal for some immediate help at wide receiver, and new coach Shane Beamer has hit on a player he must think can contribute in 2021. Thursday former Georgia Tech WR Ahmarean Brown (5-10 170) announced on his Instagram and Twitter pages that he will transfer to USC.
Brown is a native of Tampa and a graduate of Jefferson High School, the same school that produced former Gamecock quarterback Stephen Garcia.
Brown played two seasons at Tech coming on board when the new coaching staff there was hired. This past season he caught 11 passes for 183 yards and 1 touchdown. As a freshman in 2019, Brown caught 21 passes for 396 yards and tied Calvin Johnson for the most receiving touchdowns as a freshman with seven.
In two games in his career against Clemson, Brown had 2 catches for 30 yards.
At Jefferson High School, Brown caught 74 passes over his final two seasons for 1348 yards and 13 touchdowns. He was rated a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite as a high school senior.
Brown used two years of eligibility at Tech, but of course, the 2020 season doesn’t count again him, some he’ll come to Columbia with three years to play if he so chooses. He is expected to enroll at USC in January and participate in spring practice and will be eligible to play in 2021.
