The forward announced today he is skipping his senior season and turning pro.
“It’s just my time to chase my dream and go to the NBA,” Dedmon said. “I had a great time at USC and it was a good experience. I had some ups and downs and learned a lot and believe it is best for me to turn professional at this time.
“I wish USC, Andy Enfield and all my teammates all the best moving forward. Andy is a good guy and I believe he will do great things here.”
My take: This has to be viewed as a setback for Andy Enfield since he has received 100 percent positive coverage since USC hired him. Dedmon is not ready for the NBA and USC definitely needed him even with Omar Oraby returning.
