Ex-Oklahoma commit Makai Lemon switches to USC

Lincoln Riley has persuaded yet another top recruit to follow him from Oklahoma to USC.

On Friday, five-star wide receiver Makai Lemon announced that he was changing his commitment from the Sooners to the Trojans. Lemon became the third five-star recruit to flip his commitment after USC hired Riley away from Oklahoma last weekend.

Quarterback Malachi Nelson and running back Raleek Brown also switched their commitments to USC earlier this week.

Lemon will play much closer to home because of his change in plans. The Los Alamitos, Calif., standout is ranked as the No. 27 player in the nation based on the 247Sports Composite rankings.
