    How OJ Mayo, #1 High school senior in the country ended up at USC

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/21/sports/ncaabasketball/21usc.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&ref=sports


    A stranger walked into the University of Southern California basketball office one day last summer and asked to speak to the head coach. The stranger did not make an appointment. He did not call ahead. Tim Floyd, the U.S.C. head coach, cannot explain why he agreed to see him.

    Nine months later, as U.S.C. prepares for the regional semifinal of the N.C.A.A. tournament, Floyd recounted his version of that conversation.

    The mysterious man got right to the point. “How would you like to have the best player in the country?” he asked.

    Floyd tried not to roll his eyes.

    “Have you heard of O. J. Mayo?” the man asked.

    Of course Floyd had heard of him. Everyone in basketball had heard of him. Mayo was first mentioned in Sports Illustrated when he was in the seventh grade. He was considered a future lottery pick by the time he entered high school. He once talked trash to Michael Jordan during a pickup game at Jordan’s camp....
    Wow.. This is one of the craziest recruiting stories i've ever heard. This kid wants to make it big and he already acts like it. Agent? Entourage?
    It's going to be a trip watching USC destroy the pac-10 next year.

    USC should definitely be interesting to watch. It will be interesting to see if Mayo can stay out of trouble too.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Should be interesting if he can even live up to all his dang hype.

    Yeah, no kidding. I watched one of his games this year and he didn't do anything that spectacular really.

    And this is why the NCAA is such a joke, with high school students acting like they're superstars and universities grovelling at their feet.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    I wouldn't take him at UK.
    All he is is a thug.
    The kid can't manage to stay out of trouble and it will probably only get worse.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.
