On The Riley Files, Oklahoma insider Kegan Reneau made fascinating comparisons between former Oklahoma receivers within Lincoln Riley's offense, and the current crop of 2022 receivers at USC.
"There's a lot in terms of Graham Harrell at USC that I really like, and there's other things that I don't like," Reneau said. "I would imagine you're gonna see (at USC under Riley) something very similar to the 2016 offense that Oklahoma had, which ended up becoming the top offense in college football in 2016, where you have a guy like DeDe Westbrook. They really just attack by using him vertically. They've got Jordan Addison, who reminds me a lot of what Sterling Shepard was like in college. Then you've got Mario Williams, who can play that DeDe Westbrook role. You have that 2015 kind of personnel besides the running backs. I would imagine you're gonna see a little bit of it.
"This is gonna be more akin to what you saw in 2016 and 2017. They were very, very innovative and very, very good. I expect the offense at USC to be very tough to slow down here in 2022."
