Marqise Lee Should Abandon USC Trojans, Book For 2014 NFL Draft

Who in their right mind would want to play for the USC Trojans? A football program that was once thought of as the class of college athletics can now be described as a dumpster fire. Despite winning 10 games in 2013, the Trojans worked their way through three different coaches as one of their leaders, Lane Kiffin, was fired on a bus leaving the stadium!

With all of that being said, Marquise Lee would be a fool to stay another year in the Land of Troy. Even though Lee’s junior campaign left a lot to be desired — 50 catches, 791 yards receiving and two touchdowns — this wideout still has a future as an NFL All-Pro. And anyone who watched the Las Vegas Bowl knows that Lee has the ability to absolutely tear up opposing defenses.

Lee made the Fresno State Bulldogs‘ secondary look silly on Saturday as No. 9 tied his season total in touchdowns and finished the day with 118 yards through the air. Sure, Lee would benefit from staying another year at USC and honing his craft, but the risk of staying another year in college just isn’t worth the reward. Therefore, I fully expect Lee to take the leap to the professional game as he will hear his name called somewhere in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
