2019 National Signing Day: Four-star wide receiver Kyle Ford pledges to USC, Graham Harrell's Air Raid
Kyle Ford has been described as a man amongst boys by scouts, reporters and opponents. And now, that man is a USC Trojan.
Ford, a four-star wide receiver out of Orange, California, made it official on Wednesday with the program just 30 miles down the road. Some recruiting sites have him listed as a five-star, making him the highest-rated signee in this USC class according to 247Sports' composite rankings.

That's fantastic news for Graham Harrell, USC's new offensive coordinator, as he implements the Air Raid offense. The pass-happy system typically features four receivers, giving Ford plenty of opportunities to get on the field.
But first, he has months of knee rehab ahead as he recovers from an ACL injury that took him off the field in late September. In just five games with Orange Lutheran High School last season, he racked up 456 receiving yards, averaging just over 90 per game.
Take a look at his highlights here:
