Andy Enfield’s Trojans begin official practice next week and preparing for the November 9 opener at Galen against CSUN. Enfield’s success over the last few years has vaulted USC into the upper tier of the Pac-12. This year, the Trojans have the potential talent and the experience to be a top-25 team and have success in the NCAA Tournament. The Trojans don’t have a star ready to control games and help win close contests. But for the fourth straight season, USC has a five-star recruit on the roster in Isaiah Mobley and at least one sidekick that can cause trouble for any opponent. Isaiah has taken longer to develop than Onyeka Okongwu and his younger brother Evan. But we saw a glimpse of the player the older Mobley can be in last season’s post-season and at the Draft Combine. There are several candidates to follow Jonah Mathews and Tajh Eaddy and lead the backcourt scoring and take the big shots from the perimeter. Transfer Boogie Ellis comes to mind first, but there are other candidates including a healthy and slimmed down Ethan Anderson, experienced guard/ wing Drew Peterson, Isaiah White and a pair of highly regarded freshman guards in Reese Waters and Malik Thomas.
