Last Friday Tim Floyd landed verbal commitments from three of the nations best juniors; Demar Derozan, Angelo Johnson, and platinum recording artist/point guard Percy "Romeo" Miller. Demar Derozan and Angelo Johnson are both ranked amongst the nation's top 100 juniors according to Rivals.com, ranking 55 and 79 respectively. Derozan, a future lottery pick, is an amazing athlete with tremendous talent. Derozan and Romeo spent last summer together playing for the same AAU basketball team, the P. Miller Ballers, coached by Romeo's father, Percy "Master P" Miller.
Romeo, primarily known for his music, Nickelodeon television show, and movies, states that basketball is his first love and that basketball is in his blood. With the drive and determination that has landed him success in the entertainment industry, I believe Romeo has the potential to be a great point guard.
Floyd now has verbal commitments from 3 point guards in the 2008 class. Where does this leave Brandon Jennings? Jennings decided earlier this month that he was going to consider his options and take official visits to UConn and Arizona. Do these recent commitments hurt Floyd's chances of retaining Jennings' commitment? Not necessarily. Jennings actually played alongside Derozan and Romeo for the P. Miller Ballers before switching to the SoCal All-Stars. We will keep you updated on Jennings' commitment.
