Could USC have a Chance with Comanche?
The class of 2015 has a fair share of elite prospects, including Los Angeles (Calif.) four star center Chance Comanche. He visited USC on July 1st, which was his first time on campus.
"It was a great visit and I like the school," Comanche said. "They have a nice campus and I really like the coaching staff."
The 6-foot-11 prospect went into visit with an idea of what he wants in a school.
"I'm looking for academics, a strong basketball program, and a good coach. I also want to make sure I fit into the team."
He found out that USC offers a lot of what he's interested in.
"They have a great academic tradition and they have a coach who could get the program going. I could see myself possibly being a part of that."
Watching Andy Enfield's success at an unknown school like Florida Gulf Coast helped make that vision more clear.
"I saw a few of their games with coach Enfield," he said. "They ran the floor a lot and played team ball."
That's something that the USC coaches pitched to Comanche.
"Coach Enfield talked to me about their style of play and how they play as a team. He also talked about the players he helped out in the NBA with their shooting technique and development."
There might not be much to improve for the View Park High prospect. He averages a double-double every night. But he wants to see what Enfield's techniques do for the Trojans.
"I just have to sit back and watch them. I want to see if they'll be a winning program."
While he waits for USC's new coaching staff to prove themselves on the court, Comanche will visit other campuses. He doesn't have many plans yet, it's early, but he wants to take one visit towards the end of summer.
"I'll hopefully be visiting Arizona in August. I want to see what their school is like and meet their coaching staff."
