Former USC guard Ramon Galloway is attracting interest from other major programs now that he is a college basketball free agent.
His former high school coach Fred Ross said Monday that a couple of schools that had recruited Galloway before he signed with USC have expressed interest in getting involved again.
Galloway committed to USC in September of 2008. At that time he also had offers from Virginia, South Florida and Central Florida. Virginia was second on his list at the time of his commitment.
He was also drawing interest from Kentucky, Xavier, Louisville, Pitt, Memphis and Florida.
Never miss a local story.
Ross said Galloway is concentrating on completing his academic work so that he can transfer to another D-1 program.
Ross did not express any anger toward USC coach Darrin Horn over his handling of the Galloway situation, saying this sort of thing happens a lot in major college basketball. He said Galloway told him he had been told by Horn he would be no higher than the seventh, eighth or ninth man on the team next season.
Horn has been recruiting Ross's junior big man Joell James. The coach said Horn is still welcome to recruit him, though he's not sure how interested James is in the Gamecocks. Clemson was by to watch James work out last week.
