USC says it is holding guard De'Anthony Melton out for precautionary reasons as it works to confirm Melton is eligible. The school is currently cooperating with the FBI investigation that exposed assistant Tony Bland.

USC on De'Anthony Melton: "As a precaution, De'Anthony is being held out due to a potential issue regarding eligibility. De'Anthony is a valued member of the USC community and USC is working diligently to independently investigate this matter in order to confirm that De'Anthony meets the NCAA eligibility requirements."

Scout's Take: ESPN 100 PG Elijah Weaver picks USC

Coach Andy Enfield's up-tempo offense should get a boost from Elijah Weaver, whose strengths include pushing the ball upcourt and finishing at the rim.

Paul Biancardi Basketball Recruiting 

More from Weaver on USC. "My reasoning behind selecting the Trojans was because of head coach Andy Enfield. He made me feel like a priority. He was being straight forward and honest with me from the jump. I also have a great relationship with assistant coach Chris Capko. Our relationship has been growing for years and it's only getting better. I just believe in the program and the people there." Elijah Weaver is no.42 in the ESPN 100.
