A lot of people were skeptical of Romeo Miller’s game when he accepted an offer to play basketball at USC, myself included. I had my doubts about whether or not he would be able to compete at the collegiate level. Rivals.com rates Romeo as a 2 star prospect and Scout.com has him listed as a 1 star prospect.
Regardless of ranking, I never once doubted the benefits of having a multi-millionaire rapper/actor on our basketball team. The benefits are obvious. “Welcome to USC Renardo. I’d like you to meet your host, Romeo Miller.” Enough said.
Recently I realized I was doubting a player that I had never seen play. I never read a scouting report or seen a highlight reel. (The fact that I couldn’t find a scouting report or a highlight reel only added to my skepticism). Today however I ran across this highlight video from USCHoops.com of Romeo at USC’s Elite Camp, providing me with my first look at the young star.
First impression? Very impressed with his defense, passing, and playmaking ability. I’m looking forward to seeing his game improve over the next year.
Keep up the good work Tourney Tim!
