Seeing Stars

Both TrojanNYC and USC Sports Talk have the scoop on OJ Mayo arriving at school this week, as does Matthew Kredell

The most-anticipated recruit in USC basketball history is scheduled to arrive on campus Wednesday.

O.J. Mayo, the top-ranked player for the class of 2007 by many recruiting services, will be set up in a dorm room with fellow incoming freshman Marcus Simmons. They will both begin summer school classes June 27.

Mayo, who can play point guard or shooting guard, starred at Huntington High in West Virginia last year.

I would agree with that assessment. There is a lot riding on his arrival as USC basketball is coming into its own and starts to get more national recognition. There obviously are some questions with both Pruitt and Young off to the NBA as how this team will perform with all the new faces and a new leader at the helm. That coupled with the story of the official arrivals of both Mitch Mustain and Joe McKnight, from AOL FanHouse, starts the arrival of all the top talent that Pete Carroll and Tim Floyd have recruited over the past year.

USC continues to get national recognition for its recruiting, of course other programs get their talent as well but not the headlines and this drives you-know-who from across town nuts as they continue to wallow in the ineptness of the Karl Dorrell era and attempt to relive the Wooden years. Of course there are no guarantees, but SC continues to get the headlines while others can only attempt to set the record straight to fit their own twisted views. Do me a favor pal, you seem like a moderately smart guy so maybe you could prove something other than just speculation.

We only need the baseball program to get back on track. I will have more on that later today.
