USC Men's Basketball received a nice impact player for the 2017-18 season as former Duke guard Derrick Thornton Jr told Scout's Josh Gershon today that he was transferring to USC.

Thornton Jr. chose USC over Kansas, Miami, and Washington.

The Henderson, Nevada native averaged 7.5 points and 2.5 assists per game for the Blue Devils this past season.
