Kevin Porter Jr. responded Monday to the uncertainty about his status with the USC program created by Andy Enfield’s comments following the Trojans’ 81-60 loss to Oregon.
Enfield said Porter’s suspension that kept him out of the game Sunday was indefinite and that “we’ll reevaluate his future with the program this week.”
Porter posted a message from his Twitter account Monday morning to address his situation.
“There has been speculation that I will no longer finish the season as a Trojan, those accusation & what has brought a lot of attention to the Trojan family are all false,” Porter wrote. “I am a Trojan and never once have been put in a predicament from our coaching staff that I was removed and wasn’t a part of this program, I apologize for all the accusation that has been said about me & hope our support and our family stay as one! Fight on #TrojanFamily”
On Thursday, Porter played in his first game since Dec. 1 as he recovered from a thigh bruise he sustained Nov. 22. But he had an undisclosed “conduct issue” this weekend in Oregon and was suspended by Enfield.
Porter, a freshman wing, is a projected NBA lottery pick who is expected to play one season with the Trojans before declaring for the draft.
