USC big man Jabari Craig fails to qualify, will go junior college route
USC will be down a big man next season, as freshman Jabari Craig failed to qualify.
Andy Enfield has upgraded the talent since arriving at USC, but the Trojans won't have one of their incoming big men on campus this season.
Jabari Craig failed to qualify at USC and will instead take the junior college route, his former AAU coach confirmed to CBSSports.com.
The news was first reported by ESPN.
Craig, a 6-foot-10 center from Fishburne Military Academy (Va.), was rated a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite for the class of 2014. Arizona State, Purdue, Marquette and others were in pursuit when Craig pledged to USC last fall.
Without Craig on the roster, USC will have to rely on the Serbian duo of Nikola Jovanovic and Strahinja Gavrilovic once again.
