USC recruiting: Trojans make top four for 2017 PF Oshae Brissett

Six-foot-nine Canadian power forward Oshae Brissett trims list to final four with USC one of the teams still in consideration.

Canada has been a hotbed of hoops talent in recent years and the USC Trojans are trying to dip into that pool with a potential addition of 6-foot-9, 190-pound power forward Oshae Brissett.

Brissett's Athlete Institute Prep in Orangeville, Ontario announced his final four schools in a press release and tweet on Friday with USC as one of the schools in the running:

The other three schools in Brissett's top four were Memphis, Syracuse and Oregon. He cut down his top schools from a previous list of 19 that included seven Pac-12 teams:

"I am extremely excited for the season and for what the future holds for Oshae," Athlete Institute head coach Chris Cobbina said in a release. "He's a great kid with a terrific work ethic, who has embraced taking on a leadership role. There is no one more deserving of everything he has earned."

The athletic forward, who averaged 16.4 points and 7.8 rebounds while played on the national U18 team for Canada at the FIBA Americas Championship this summer, can guard multiple positions on the court due to his length and athleticism. He has official visits set for Syracuse and Oregon in October with Memphis to be determined. He already visited USC in February.

"I took a visit there and I loved the campus," Brissett told Scout two months ago. "The coaches are amazing. The players there are amazing. Everything around L.A. is just great."

Brissett is no stranger to the Western half of the United States after playing at Las Vegas (Nev.) Findley Prep until returning home to Canada to finish his high school career at Athlete Institute.
