USC basketball recruiting: Trojans land 4-star PF Chimezie Metu


In the 2013 season, Andy Enfield turned his Florida Gulf Coast Eagles into Dunk City, upsetting the Georgetown Hoyas and becoming America’s darling. 

In his first year with the Southern California Trojans, the team went just 11-21, including 2-16 in the Pac-12.

On Tuesday, Enfield took a big step towards upgrading the talent in the Trojans’ program when he landed a commit from 4-star power forward Chimezie Metu, who announced his decision on twitter.

The 6’8, 215-pounder is from Lawndale, California and attends Lawndale High School. He is ranked as the country’s 18th-best power forward prospect, the 12th-best overall prospect in the state of California and the 74th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Metu chose the Trojans over offers from the California Golden Bears, Harvard Crimson and the defending National Champion Connecticut Huskies, among others.

He is the first commitment for the Trojans in the class of 2015.
