As Phil Kornblut reported late Wednesday night, former USC point guard Jarod Gerald (6-1 185) plans to be back in a Gamecock uniform next season.
Gerald left the Gamecocks for academic reasons at the end of the 2003 fall semester. He had planned to enroll at Tennessee State that spring but instead, he returned to his home in Mullins, SC.
This fall Gerald enrolled as a student at Coastal Carolina and needs to complete 18 credit hours to be eligible to transfer to USC and play basketball next season. He is on track to accomplish exactly that. The USC staff is on board with Gerald's plan.
A source told Kornblut that Gerald would bring 'some much needed speed and defensive skill to the backcourt.' Gerald originally signed with Georgia as a high school senior but did not qualify. He spent a year at Fork Union Prep before signing with USC. He played in 25 games as a freshman in 2003. He played in 6 games last season.
