Next gen: prepare for sons of Dennis Rodman and LeBron James link up
The USC Trojans are putting together an amazing roster with top prospects like Isaiah Collier, Bronny James and DJ Rodman.
Bronny James, son of LA Lakers and NBA legend Lebron James, put the spotlight on the USC Trojans recently by announcing that he would play at the college level under head coach Andy Enfield.

And the Trojans, who already had Isaiah Collier along with James, have also now added DJ Rodman, son of another legend of the court, Dennis Rodman. Through a post on his Instagram account, Rodman announced his intention to transfer from Washington State to Southern California.
The 6-6 forward played the last four seasons with the Washington State Cougars and last year he averaged 9.6 points and 5.8 rebounds after starting 30 of his 31 games.
Rodman's son will take advantage of the NCAA regulations resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic so he will be able to play a fifth season at the university level.
Trojans final season
The Trojans finished last season with a 22-11 record, ranking second in the Pac-12. Their participation in March Madness was short-lived as they were eliminated in the first round by the Michigan State Spartans.
USC has been successful in sending players to the NBA as in the past six years, six Trojans have been drafted to the NBA: Chimezie Metu (2nd round 2018), De’Anthony Melton (2nd round 2018), Kevin Porter Jr. (1st round 2019), Onyeka Okongwu (1st round 2020), Evan Mobley (1st round 2021) and Isaiah Mobley (2nd round 2022).
