Lil Romeo Will Play College Ball for USC

Lil Romeo will be the new star on the USC basketball team. Percy Jr. signed his national letter of intent on Monday at a news conference held at a swank nearby Beverly Hills hotel. He's a senior at Beverly Hills High School and is in the top 15 among point guards at preps schools around the nation. The 6 ft, 170 lb star averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists a game last season. I remember years ago when his father was cut from a couple of NBA team rosters. Hopefully, Romeo will have a different outcome. I think he's going the right route, his father wasn't able to attend a privileged school, so to see his son have the opportunity is very inspiring as long as he doesn't try to live vicariously through Romeo!
