03/26/17 - USC Pro day: Southern Cal doesn't have a lock first-round pick in the 2017 draft class, but cornerback Adoree Jackson and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster are expected Day 2 picks on draft weekend. Both stood on their 40-yard dash times from the combine but participated in other agility and positional drills. Smith-Schuster improved his vertical jump to 33.5 inches, one inch better than at the combine. He didn't do any cone drills at Lucas Oil Stadium, running in the 6.95-7.05 range in the three-cone drill and 4.20-4.25 in the 20-yard shuttle. Smith-Schuster caught the ball well during receiving drills, showing off his body coordination and smooth strides. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/06/17 - 2017 NFL Combine, Saturday: 3. Ross wasn't the only receiver turning heads...Citing tight calves, Ross elected not to participate in the position drills, but several who did likely boosted their stock every bit as much as the Huskies' speedster. Fellow Pac-12 star JuJu Smith-Schuster from Southern Cal was not nearly as fast (4.54), but this was a better time than many expected for him and he ran crisp routes, showing better agility and acceleration at Indianapolis than he did while fighting through various injuries last year. Alabama's Ardarius Stewart, Washington State's Gabe Marks and Northern Illinois' Kenny Golladay each turned in terrific grabs, showcasing the body control and sticky hands that will leave lasting impressions in scouts' minds. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/08/17 - Smith-Schuster to skip senior year at USC to enter draft...Southern California standout wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster announced Saturday that he is bypassing his senior season and declaring for the NFL Draft. Smith-Schuster is the fourth-ranked receiver and 29th overall prospect, according to NFLDraftScout.com. "This was a very difficult decision to make," Smith-Schuster wrote on his Twitter feed. "I have loved my time at USC and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Playing for USC was truly a dream come true, and I am proud of what we were able to accomplish in three years." Smith-Schuster ranks fourth in USC history with 216 career receptions. He caught 25 touchdown passes and accumulated 3,092 yards in his three seasons. Smith-Schuster caught 70 passes for 914 yards and 10 scores this season. He had seven receptions for 133 yards and one touchdown in USC's 52-49 victory over Penn State in the Rose Bowl. - The Sports Xchange
12/17/16 - 2016 ALL-PAC-12 CONFERENCE SECOND TEAM (COACHES): WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, Jr., USC,...Five Trojans made the All-Pac-12 second team: tailback Ronald Jones II, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, offensive guard Damien Mama, defensive tackle Stevie Tu’ikolovatu and inside linebacker Cameron Smith. - USC Football
09/13/16 - Southern California's humiliating loss to Alabama didn't linger. Max Browne and Sam Darnold passed for two touchdowns apiece, Adoree Jackson returned a punt 77 yards for a score, and USC rebounded with a 45-7 victory over Utah State on Saturday. JuJu Smith-Schuster caught two TD passes as the Trojans (1-1) showed no hangover from their 52-6 loss to the top-ranked Crimson Tide last week in Texas, the biggest season-opening loss in school history and their most lopsided defeat since 1966. "We needed that," said receiver Darreus Rogers, who had a career-high seven catches for 82 yards. "It's big to build our confidence back up. We had it in our mind to come out strong early and execute."
While the offense had several solid drives for both quarterbacks, the USC defense shut out the Aggies (1-1) until Kent Myers' 6-yard TD pass to Wyatt Houston on the last play of the third quarter. Browne was mostly sharp in his first career victory as a starter, completing 23 for 30 with one interception. Darnold threw his first touchdown pass for USC in the second quarter, hitting Deontay Burnett on his first play. Jackson picked up a bouncing punt late in the third quarter and sliced through Utah State for the third punt-return TD of his career. "This week, it was a team that really wanted to perform, and really wanted to get back out and play," USC coach Clay Helton said. - AP Sports
