The son of NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, commonly known as DJ due to his full name being Dennis Rodman Jr has announced that he will transfer to USC. DJ Rodman has been a prominent member at Washington State for the last four years.
He’s not the only son of an NBA great that will be playing at USC either. Bronny James recently announced his commitment to play at the University of Southern California. This won’t be the first time James has played with NBA progeny, as he played with Zaire Wade, the son of Dwyane Wade, at Sierra Canyon High School.
Last season, Rodman finished with 9.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game while shooting 41.3% from the field and 38.1% from 3-point range. The 6-foot-6 forward figures to be a solid depth piece on an overhauled Trojans team next season. The team has now added Rodman, James and Collier. They might not be done either as five-star center Aaron Bradshaw has been rumored to attend USC.
All of that talent, plus returning starters in Boogie Ellis, Kobe Johnson and Joshua Morgan makes for an unstoppable team. Ellis led the team in scoring last season, while Morgan and Johnson both made the Pac-12 All-Defensive team.
How will DJ Rodman fit?
With the Cougars, Rodman has seen some up-and-down production, however, he is coming off of his best season. His game resembles that of his fathers, as an undersized forward who has a knack for defense. There’s only one true difference and that is that DJ may be a better shooter. He has the ability to be a third or fourth option.
Much like his father, the pedigree to play the game of basketball is top-notch.
