USC loses commitment from four-star prospect Brooks amid FBI investigation
J'Raan Brooks, a top-100 player, says he's reassessing his options
USC lost a commitment from Class of 2018 four-star power forward J'Raan Brooks on Friday. Brooks announced he's reassessing his options amid the FBI's investigation into the basketball program.
"Due to unforeseen circumstances stemming from the recent news that has come to light in regards to the Trojan basketball program – I have decided to reopen my commitment to examine other options," Brooks said on Twitter. "While USC is still very much a possibility, the uncertainty of their situation has led me to believe I should reassess my own."
Brooks is rated as the No. 79 player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 21 player at his position.
USC associate coach Tony Bland was one of four college basketball assistants charged in an FBI investigation earlier this month revealing his involvement in a bribery scheme. He's accused of providing $9,000 cash payments to families of two current USC players.
The Trojans still hold commitments from two four-star prospects in the Class of 2018 in forward Taeshon Cherry and guard Kevin Porter, a pair of top-50 prospects.
