Lil' Romeo signs to play basketball at USC (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/recruiting/news/story?id=3119581)

LOS ANGELES -- Actor/rapper Lil' Romeo is headed for Southern California to play basketball.

The teenage hip-hop performer and DeMar DeRozan, another local standout, signed national letters of intent to attend USC on Monday at a news conference held at a posh hotel near Beverly Hills.

Lil' Romeo, whose full name is Percy Romeo Miller, is currently a senior guard at Beverly Hills High who averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists last season. His father, hip-hop mogul Master P, had tryouts with two NBA teams in the 1990s.

"This is the most important thing I've had to do and hopefully it sends a message to kids across the country that education is more important than money," Miller said at the news conference. "Getting a college scholarship is more important than winning an American Music Award, and I plan to be the best student-athlete I can be at USC."

One recruiting service ranks Miller, a 6-0, 170-pounder, among the top 15 prep point guards in the country.

I mean the guy is already rich, and his dad is filthy rich, so why not get a education. He can always sign in his spare time.

Exactly what I was thinking. Most of the time, to even be considered possible NBA material, you have to be scoring 20 to 30 points a game, and 10 to 15 assists.

Most NBA players were the best in the citys.
