Stepheson to transfer to USC

According to Scott Wolf sources have indicated that North Carolina transfer Alex Stepheson will Transfer to USC.

Former Harvard-Westlake High of Studio City and North Carolina forward Alex Stepheson informed USC he intends to transfer to the school in the fall, according to sources close to Stepheson.

The 6-foot-9 junior also considered UCLA and Arizona State before selecting the Trojans. He will have two years of eligibility remaining and will probably have to sit out the 2008-09 season.

When Stepheson left North Carolina in May, he said in a statement he wanted to be closer to his father, Art, who has heart-related health issues.

I will believe it when I see him enrolled. If Stepheson is coming it and if he can get a waiver, which I doubt, he would be a big help to Taj in grabbing some rebounds but as the article also states it appears that SC is already at its scholarship limit so I am a little concerned about the availability of a spot on the team.

This will have to be monitored closely. All you can do is hope for the best!
