Glasser Picks Pac-10 Program

Derek Glasser ended his recruitment late Sunday night. The Lakewood (Calif.) Artesia product is headed to the Pac-10.

Southern Cal finally came with an offer and it didn't take point guard Derek Glasser long to commit to the Trojans once they confirmed their interest.

"I'm going to USC," Glasser said. "I think that they're going to be really good and they have that new facility and I like Coach Floyd."

Glasser, a big time winner on the high school level, had interest from Pacific, New Mexico, San Diego State and Montana. However, he said all along that the Trojans would be tough to beat if they came with the offer.

The guard said that he and Ryan Francis could be in a tussle for court time next year.

"It depends on how I come along. They only have one point guard in the whole program. Ryan and me will be the only two point guards and there's a lot of minutes to be had if I play well. It just depends how hard I work and how the team goes with either one of us."

The Artesia product might not be the last player from his high school to pick the Trojans. Tim Floyd's crew is actively recruiting teammate James Harden, a junior shooting guard.

"I guess we'll let you know soon," Glasser said of Harden's interest in USC. "It's a possibility – not a definite – that James will come with me but it's a possibility."
