OT: Rapper Romeo Signs With USC Trojans
 
Quote:



Rapper Percy "Romeo" Miller has officially signed on as a member of the 2008 Universities of Southern California Trojans basketball team.

Romeo, a 5'11 All-American point guard at Beverly Hill High School, will put all of his film and TV roles on hold, while he attends USC and earns his degree in business administration.

According to representatives for Romeo, he is is the first nationally known active Hip-Hop star to receive a full athletic scholarship.

Romeo's brother Vercy Miller is also signing with the Trojans, as well as standout shooting guard DeMar DeRozan of Compton High School.

Romeo starred in the hit sitcom Romeo! and has sold millions of records throughout his recording and television career, which is overseen by his father, mogul/entrepreneur Percy "Master P." Miller.

I wonder if Romeo is any better than his pops Master P. Now USC has O.J. Mayo and Romeo. USC is gonna be the 2008 NCAA Champions!

I doubt he is good enough to start as a frosh.

I have seen Romeo play, on this one show, and he is pretty good I think College could refine his game and he could maybe go pro, I definetly want to see how this plays out.

why would they need to waste a scholarship on him? would seem like he could pay for himself to go so they could save the scholarship... ah well no biggie.

I agree. I cant see him staying all 4 years either and that could screw up USCs program

Doesn't matter if Romeo already has money.

It's a gesture to show that they want him and they think he's good.

He could start depending on who else they recruit. All the big names they have now and are coming in for next year (Mayo) should be gone when he arrives.

Brandon Jennings is going to USC too so he will take Mayo's place.

anyone got footage of him? i had no idea he was legit. i thought they were just talking about him because he was good for a "celebrity," but damn, if usc signed him, then obviously his game is better than what i believed.
