J'Raan Brooks

Four-star forward J’Raan Brooks has backed off his pledge to USC due to the ongoing federal probe surrounding the program. He announced via his Twitter account that he will reopen his recruitment.

“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 available options,” Brooks said in a statement released via Twitter. “While USC is still very much a possibility, the uncertainty of their situation has led me to believe I should reassess my own.”

“I have nothing but the utmost respect for coach Enfield, the rest of the staff, the school, and fans of the program,” Brooks continued. ” However I need to make sure what I do is best for my future, and ensure I am making an informed decision, while seeing how this entire process transpires. Thank you.”

Before committing to USC, the 6’8″ Garfield High (WA) product had a top five consisting of Stanford, Virginia, Oklahoma and Cal. Brooks also held offers from Notre Dame, Arizona State, Montana and Washington.

Brooks — according to 247Sports is ranked as a top 100 prospect in the 2018 class. He is a face-up power forward who is versatile and has the ability to create his own offense. With his size and knack for running the floor, Brooks will be a sought-after commodity in the coming weeks and months.

The Trojans’ 2018 class still includes verbal commits from forward Taeshon Cherry and guard Kevin Porter, who are both four-star recruits in their own right.
