Stewart to the Trojans

USC coach Andy Enfield lands a commitment from the No. 40 player in the 2014 class...

USC coach Andy Enfield picked up his biggest commitment to date on Sunday when 2014 Los Angeles (Calif.) Westchester guard Elijah Stewart pledged to the Trojans.

Stewart is rated the No. 40 player in the Scout 100.

The four-star shooting guard originally signed his National Letter of Intent with Loyola Marymount University, but was granted a release when LMU fired coach Max Good.

Back on the recruiting market in April, Stewart was pursued by multiple schools across the country. He took official visits to Cincinnati and Oklahoma State before committing on his official visit to USC.

"This is a massive commitment for USC," said Scout recruiting analyst Josh Gershon. "The Trojans to land a big time scorer in Elijah Stewart in a key position, He's a local kid and it's a big statement for Andy Enfield's program. But more importantly, Stewart looks to be a key component on what is now a loaded back court for USC moving forward."

Stewart, joins point guard Jordan McLaughlin, center Jabari Craig, small forward Malik Marquetti, and power forward Malik Price-Martin in USC's 2014 recruiting class.

"Stewart will join McLaughlin, Marquetti, and now eligible Katin Reinhardt – five players who compliment each other well," Gershon said. "USC could have one of the best back courts in the coming years."
