USC’s 2019 class added another asset, this time at tight end. Ethan Rae is a four-star tight end, and a southern California native. Ranked as the #10 tight end and #30 player out of California in the class of 2019, Rae joins a talented bunch of pass-catchers committed for the 2019 class. Though USC usually exerts a magnetic pull on local products, Rae has said himself that he never expected to choose USC.
Strong connections with head coach Clay Helton, tight end coach Keary Colbert, and early opportunities at playing time swayed Rae in his decision. At 6’ 5” and weighing 240 pounds, Rae has the size and athleticism to play every down, contributing as both a blocker and receiver.
