Price-Martin high on USC after official

USC hosted 2014 Oakland Park (Fla.) Northeast power forward Malik Price-Martin on an official visit over the weekend.

"It was good," Price-Martin told FOX Sports NEXT on the phone Monday.

Price-Martin spent the weekend on the campus of USC, also making a trip to Santa Monica with head coach Andy Enfield. "I liked it a lot," Price-Martin said. "I could see myself there."

The 6-foot-8 175-pound power forward also said he can see himself playing in Enfield's system. "I watched the team workout," he explained. "I see myself fitting in with Coach Enfield's offense."

The four-star prospect came on the visit with an idea of what kind of basketball to expect to see, familiar with Enfield's run in the NCAA tournament with Florida Gulf Coast, the team dubbed ‘Dunk City'. "I watched them," he said, "I could really see myself in that offense."

Trojans assistant coach Kevin Norris is Price-Martin's main recruiter at USC. Price-Martin says Norris has worked hard to close the gap between USC and schools who offered him early, seeing as the Trojans staff recently was put in place. "They've definitely made up ground," he said.

Seeing USC's campus further helped the staff's cause with Price-Martin, who said he was "really impressed" by the John McKay Center -- USC's recruiting centerpiece.

Price-Martin says he has "high interest" in USC since returning home from his official visit.

UCLA, Florida, Florida State, and Miami are still in the mix in his recruitment.
