Five-star guard Josh Christopher of Mayfair High School in Lakewood announced he committed to Arizona State tonight.
Quite a few USC fans thought Christopher and Ziaire Williams would be a package deal for Andy Enfield. Those fans will be harder to find now that the duo went elsewhere.
I can’t really say I care what Christopher did either way, but it was irritating that he made his announcement more than five hours late. I don’t think USC fortunes rest on one-and-done guys anyways.
I’m not a fan boy who makes GIFs like people in the athletic dept. when a kid commits and it’s really better for the program when it finds grinders like Jonah Mathews or Nick Rakocevic that stay all four years. I think De’Anthony Melton would have stayed multiple seasons too but that’s another topic.
