This is great news for the Trojans, and as Reese himself put it, he just wants to win.

Waters graduated from high school on December 9 and will wear No. 21 for USC. He was supposed to make his debut for USC on December 13 but instead will have to wait until at least December 31 as that is the next scheduled game for USC against Colorado.
Waters is a 6-5, 210-pound guard from Long Beach, Calif., and attended St. Bernard HS in Playa del Rey, Calif. Waters was ranked as the No. 4 player in the state of California and No. 50 overall player in the nation by 247Sports.com. Waters averaged 17.0 points, 10.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 steals per game in leading the Vikings to a 22-7 record last season. As a sophomore at Dorsey HS, Waters averaged 18.9 points, 6.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.7 steals per game.
It’s a big get, literally, for the Trojans team who absolutely could use his size and offensive skillset. Here’s hoping we can see him earlier than later and we don’t have to postpone any more events.
