USC receivers coach Tee Martin has been making in-home visits with recruits this week, but his most important target in the 2015 class is already on campus.

Receiver Nelson Agholor "is my biggest recruit right now," Martin said.

Agholor is one of three juniors, including defensive lineman Leonard Williams and tailback Javorius Allen, who could make themselves available for the 2015 NFL draft.

Martin said recently that he had danced around the subject with Agholor, but would soon sit down to have a serious discussion.

“I’ve jokingly taken my shots because he is having a great year,” said Martin, who saw receivers Robert Woods and Marqise Lee depart for the NFL after strong junior seasons.

Agholor has a team-best 97 receptions this season, 11 for touchdowns. He also has returned two punts for touchdowns.
