Kevin O’Neill’s USC Trojans received two commitments earlier this month, in the form of Roschon Prince and Kendal Harris. On Monday, both players made the first edition of the FanSided 150, our network’s rankings of the top 150 high school basketball prospects in the Class of 2013.
Roschon Prince, a 6-foot-5 small forward out of Long Beach Poly, committed to the Trojans on August 7th, and is ranked 75th overall in the FanSided 150, and 14th among players listed at the three. He’s a scorer by trade, averaging 16 points-per-game in Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League this summer in Los Angeles.
Kendal Harris, a 4-star of Richardson, Texas, is the 21st ranked point guard in the class. At 6-foot-4 and No. 98 in the 150, Harris has the size and ability to play both in the lane on drives to the rim, as well back along the arc. He’s a plus defender and comes from a strong lineage, as his brother Terrel Harris just won the NBA Finals with the Miami Heat back in June. Harris is slotted to take over for Jio Fontan next year, as Fontan enters this season as a senior and the team’s starting point guard.
Other players of note in the FanSided 150 include UCLA’s lone commit Zach Lavine(70th), and California’s best prospect, Aaron Gordon out of San Jose, who is ranked fifth overall. Also, Roschon Prince’s Long Beach Poly teammate, Jordan Bell, also made the list at No. 83. He’s seriously considering the Trojans along with with Texas and Washington, but the Oregon Ducks appear to be his leader at the moment.
