Agholor picks up USC offer

There have been a lot of questions about rising junior athlete Nelson Agholor (Tampa, Fla./Berkeley Prep), since he was offered by Southern Cal earlier this year.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound small-school star added offers of Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame, South Florida and UCLA in the following weeks and has been impressing many at camps.

"I've just been a player in the right spot," Agholor said, while participating in the All-Madden Camp last weekend at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.

The right spot for Agholor has been anywhere he can get on the field. As a sophomore, he played running back, wide receiver and safety. He has showed so much potential at each position, he will have plenty of options at the next level.

"Many of the programs that have contacted me want me to shop around on both sides of the ball and see where I fit the best," said Agholor. "It could be a different fit with different programs but I don't have a preferred position."

Some are wondering if Agholor will stay at Berkeley Prep past this season or transfer to one of the city's better-known programs. However, Agholor says he goes to Berkeley Prep for every reason but football and in spite of that he's happy to be part of the program.

"I play for coach Dominick Ciao and I truly believe he's one of the best head coaches in the state," Agholor said. "We weren't a good program but he's turned things around and we made the playoffs last season."

As for the attention, he appreciates it and he can expect much more of it when junior prospects can be contacted on September 1.

"I didn't expect [these offers] but it's wonderful but it only makes me work harder," Agholor said.
