6-2 guard LaShay Page is a step closer to being able to transfer to USC after being granted his release from his scholarship from Southern Miss.
The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reported today USM coach Donnie Tyndall met with Page four or five times in an effort to convince him to play his senior season in Hattiesburg. The coach gave Page a list of ten schools closer to his home to which he could transfer.
A source said Page plans to ask the NCAA for a waiver due to family issues that will allow him to play right away. Page has one season of eligiblity.
