USC received one first-place vote of confidence in the Pac-12 preseason poll, but just lost one from one of its top recruits.
Forward J’Raan Brooks, a 4-star prospect from Garfield High School (Seattle, Wash.), has decommitted from USC in the wake of the program’s implication in an FBI bribery investigation.

The 6-foot-8, 215-pound Brooks committed to head coach Andy Enfield and the Trojans in late June, just days before he was joined by 4-star shooting guard Kevin Porter Jr. At the time of his commitment, Brooks also had offers from fellow Pac-12 members Cal, Stanford, Washington and Washington State, as well as Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Virginia.
Brooks fits the mold of a traditional power forward, an aggressive rebounder who is able to hit spot-up jumpers while also playing well with his back to the basket. His reopening of his recruitment deals a big blow to USC’s top-rated 2018 recruiting class, though Brooks didn’t remove the Trojans from the realm of possibility with his tweet.
