Nelson Agholor decided to forgo his senior season at USC to make himself available for the NFL draft, but the receiver left his mark.
A plaque for Agholor has been added to USC’s All-American walk, which leads into the John McKay Center.
Agholor was selected a third-team All-American by the Associated Press and second team by FoxSports.com. USC recognized him for being first-team by CollegeSportsMadness.com.
“[Leonard Willams] you remember freshman year talking about this?!” Agholor wrote on Twitter. “It means more to me because we chased this together!”
Williams earned first-team All-American recognition in 2013 and 2014.
USC receivers coach Tee Martin posted a photo of Agholor’s plaque with a message on Instagram.
“One of the proudest days of my life,” Martin wrote. “Walking down USC’s All-American way and saw the newest All-American. One of the smartest, humblest, and hard-working men I ever coached.”
Agholor caught 104 passes for 1,313 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. He also returned two punts for touchdowns.
