USC Women’s Basketball Freshman Juju Watkins to Cruise in Style with 2023 Mercedes EQS

USC Trojans recruit Juju Watkins gets a fresh ride through a sponsorship deal.

In a remarkable display of generosity and support, incoming USC Trojans women’s basketball freshman Juju Watkins, hailing from Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, is set to make a grand entrance at the Galen Center in style. Watkins, a six-foot combo guard and the top-ranked freshman in her class, will be cruising through her freshman season in a brand-new 2023 Mercedes EQS, all thanks to a unique collaboration between Fletcher Jones Motorcars and the NIL collective House of Victory, a USC sponsor.

Juju Watkins, the highly touted five-star recruit at just 18 years old, expressed her excitement about her swanky new ride in a promotional video by House of Victory. This exceptional partnership promises to be a game-changer, not only for Watkins but also for USC Women’s Basketball as they aim to bounce back from their early exit in last spring’s March Madness tournament under the leadership of coach Lindsay Gottlieb.

With her arrival at USC, Juju Watkins joins a unique club, having previously been a classmate of none other than Bronny James, who recently donned the USC Trojans men’s basketball jersey. This connection adds an extra layer of intrigue to Watkins’ journey as she prepares to take the court for the Women of Troy.

The 2023 Mercedes EQS is no ordinary car; it’s a symbol of success and a testament to the opportunities that the NIL (Name, Image, Likeness) era in college sports can provide. This remarkable vehicle is bound to turn heads as Watkins arrives at games and practices, solidifying her status as a rising star in the world of collegiate basketball.

The House of Victory’s promotional video captures the excitement of this partnership, showcasing Juju Watkins with her sleek new ride and highlighting the support she has received from the USC community. It’s a heartwarming demonstration of how collaboration between businesses and college athletes can create opportunities that extend beyond the playing field.

“To be the first athlete to get a car with House of Victory is amazing,” Watkins reflected. “I’m super honored to have this blessing and I definitely hope more women get this, too, in the future.”

As the USC Women’s Basketball team gears up for the upcoming season, all eyes will be on Juju Watkins and her impressive set of wheels. The 2023 Mercedes EQS represents not only a mode of transportation but also a symbol of the bright future that lies ahead for college athletes in the NIL era. With Watkins’ talent and dedication, she is poised to make a significant impact on and off the court, and her new ride is just the beginning of what promises to be an exciting journey at USC.

“Galen Center is going to be super lit this year,” Watkins added. “We’ve got a lot going on and I’m super excited to feel the atmosphere. And everybody should just come to just see what we can do.”
