USC is showing interest in 6-7 Tevin Baskin of Stamford, CT and plans to scout him this weekend at the Peach Jam in North Augusta. "South Carolina seems real interested," Baskin said Wednesday night. "I talked to coach Boynton about a week ago." USC has not yet offered.
Baskin has offers from Rutgers, Xavier, Auburn, Virginia Tech, Seton Hall, St. Johns, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Fairfield and Oklahoma State. Baskin said he does not have any favorites and he plans to narrow his list by the end of August.
"I'm looking at what the graduation rate is for the schools and the background for the schools," Baskin said. "And I'm looking for the program that give you the chance to reach that dream of the NBA."
Last season Baskin averaged 22 points and 11 rebounds per game.
