Demar DeRozan qualifies to play at USC in ’08-09

Demar DeRozan won’t be joining Brandon Jennings overseas.

DeRozan, one of the top incoming freshman in the country, confirmed to that he received a qualifying ACT score and will be eligible to play at USC this season.

“Yes, I am cleared,” DeRozan said in a text message.

Just days after Jennings, who also hails from California, said he would opt to play professionally in Europe instead of attending Arizona this season, DeRozan received the news and is set to attend classes on Aug. 25 at USC.

With DeRozan, the Trojans could contend for what should be a wide-open Pac-10 title. Tim Floyd’s group lost O.J. Mayo and Davon Jefferson from last year’s team, but the athletic DeRozan could step in and fill the void left by Mayo.

USC returns three starters — Taj Gibson, Daniel Hackett and Dwight Lewis — and are also in the running to land North Carolina transfer Alex Stepheson.

DeRozan was’s No. 6 player in the Class of 2008. However, he played extremely well last week when he was one of about 25 college players invited to play at the LeBron James Skills Academy and could be the player with the greatest NBA potential in the entire class.

Both Demar DeRozan and Brandon Jennings almost couldn’t pass their ACT and SAT don’t you think something is wrong with that?
