USC Struck Gold In 2015

Commits Chimezie Metu & Bennie Boatwright

  USC landed a pair of future all PAC-12 players and likely pros in the 2015 class, in my opinion. Chimezie Metu has ridiculous explosiveness, skill to the perimeter even and runs the floor like a deer. Metu's defensive presence has a heavy impact on the game as opponents need to watch for their lay-up not to get swatted off the wall. Bennie Boatwright is basically a scoring machine and goes by "Buckets" which fits him perfectly. Being a sniper at that height makes Bennie almost impossible to guard and with a polished handle it's really just a question of if he's feeling it or not. The sky being the limit often comes to mind with these fellas. (WATCH Mixtapes On Both Below)

Interview with Chimezie Metu...

CF: You really saw it all this summer, soldiers eybl, reebok, global how will that prep u for usc?

CM: My game is pretty much ready for that and NBA but need to get body right so strength and conditioning is the biggest thing.

CF:Serious Explosiveness, is that natural, something you've worked on, combination? -

CM: Athletic ability is real natural but also developed as a main attribute that people know me for. I also make plays and get others involved people which is often overlooked.

CF: What goes on through ur head when about to dunk because u really do with authority, same with blocks?

CM: My coaches just tell me first play of the game try to block it or dunk it so they notice you and think about it and i just like throwing it down hard.

CF: Why USC?

CM: I thought the program is going in the right direction, excellent coaching staff, like their play style. The can develop my game and the players coming in with me and Bennie Boatwright we will both excel.

CF: What NBA players you like watching and kinda play like?

CM: Alotta Hakeem and Penny Hardaway, Chris Weber too.

CF: You have finally received recent love in rankings?

CM: I really dont pay attention to rankings but the last ESPN and Courtside Films and a couple others I wasnt expected to be top 50 but one of friends texted me the link I didn't even know, but it's a testimony to my work.
