Four-star wide receiver Rahshead Johnson (Long Beach, Calif.) committed to the USC Trojans on Saturday, capping off a very good afternoon on the recruiting trail for new head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff.

Ryan Bartow of 247Sports had the news:

Johnson has a thin, lanky frame (5'11'', 165 lbs), but he's very shifty in the open field. Capable of playing either wide receiver or cornerback at the next level, he is tentatively projected to begin his career on offense, though that is subject to change.

Previously committed to play at Washington, Johnson decommited (for the second time) after Sarkisian left for USC, where he replaced interim coach Ed Orgeron. According to Gerard Martinez of USCFootball.com, he accepted the scholarship just 20 minutes after Sarkisian offered it to him:

Earlier in the afternoon, the Trojans also landed a toss-up commitment from athletic tight end Bryce Dixon, who was choosing between them and UCLA. Not long after announcing he would play at USC, Dixon made a very impressive catch in the Army All-American Bowl, flashing his blue-chip athleticism.

Between him and Johnson, the Trojans scored a couple of very nice prospects to develop in the passing game. Quarterbacks Cody Kessler and Max Browne are already licking their chops.
