Alex Stepheson is a Trojan. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the 6'9" junior transfer from North Carolina has made an official decision to join the Trojans this fall. It is still unknown whether or not Stepheson will be able to suit up for the Trojans this fall. We'll have to wait for the NCAA ruling on Stepheson's (likely) petition to gain immediate eligiblity, avoiding the transfer rule that requires players to sit out a full season. With USC's luck with NCAA petitions, see Mike Williams, we have preemtively added Alex Stepheson to the 2009 recruiting class joining senior guard Demetrius Walker.
