Trojans' Nelson Agholor still impresses Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly

Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly compliments USC receiver Nelson Agholor

Notre Dame recruited USC receiver Nelson Agholor, and Fighting Irish Coach Brian Kelly remains impressed.

“As good as there is out there,” Kelly told reporters Tuesday.

Agholor caught six passes for 89 yards last season in USC’s 14-10 loss to the Fighting Irish in South Bend, Ind.

Agholor has 85 receptions this season, 10 for touchdowns. But UCLA limited the junior to three catches for 24 yards.

Agholor also muffed a punt a that led to a Bruins touchdown.

The miscue was caused by a breakdown in fundamentals, he said.

“Always catch it up high, eyes on the ball and look it in, not worry about contact,” he said. “I went away from my fundamentals and also I didn’t make the right read.

“Should have fair-caught it.”
