USC Is Part of Perrantes' List

2013 PG London Perrantes continues to be a standout throughout the July evaluation period with his unselfish play at the point. Perrantes took a few minutes to talk about his recruitment, his timeline, and recent unofficial visits to USC and WSU.

Encino (Calif.) Crespi point guard London Perrantes is shining in July and is hoping college coaches out for evaluation periods are taking notice.

The 2013 recruit holds offers from Arizona State, Pepperdine, Portland, St. Mary's, San Francisco, USC, and Washington State, but is in no hurry to make a decision.

"I'm just waiting for after July to see everything on the table," Perrantes said.

The true point guard recently took unofficial visits to USC and Washington State.

"USC went well," Perrantes said. "It was definitely something new. I've never been around the campus so it was good to see everything else other than the basketball facilities there. It is definitely something to look forward to and USC is definitely going to stay on my list."

After watching the Trojans face a tough season in 2011, Perrantes is hoping to see them make a climb in 2012.

"I think the program did go through a downfall," he explained, "but, I could try to come in and help it get better. I'm not going to say anything like that's where I want to go, but it's definitely a challenge if I do go there. Hopefully this year goes well for them. I'm looking forward to seeing how they play."

Perrantes said his visit to Pullman also went well. It was his first time seeing the Palouse and experiencing a college town.

"I've never seen anything like it," he said. "When I got there it was actually surprising how cool it was. It was amazing, the campus was amazing, it is a college town, something that I'm looking for in a college."

While Perrantes won't name any favorites at the moment, he admits programs that are standing out are those in immediate need of a point guard.

Perrantes will be in action over this final evaluation period weekend in Las Vegas with his AAU Double Pump Elite team.
