Brand new USC and former Florida Gulf Coast head coach Andy Enfield will have a new contributor to the USC program when the 2014-2015 season rolls around, and he appears to be very happy with it.

Enfield announced on Tuesday that former UNLV sharp shooter Katin Reinhardt has finalized a transfer to USC that will allow him to play after sitting out one season. Reinhardt averaged over 10 points per game as a freshman with the Rebels in 35 games, and he was a big-time contributor despite his young age. In addition, he was the team’s best three-point bomber, hitting 65 threes on the year at a solid 35% clip.

Unfortunately for Enfield, he won’t have the services of Reinhardt in his inaugural season in LA, but it appears to be a long rebuilding process for the Trojans regardless of his availability. The team finished just 14-18 in 2012-2013 and stockpiling talent is the best possible method going forward as they attempt to compete quickly.

Reinhardt could be an impact player immediately on arrival, but USC fans will have to wait just one more year.
