Playa del Rey St. Bernard High’s Reese Dixon-Waters, a consensus top-three prospect in the state for the 2021 class, chose USC over Stanford, San Diego State and California. Dixon-Waters ranks as the 47th overall prospect in the class, according to 247Sports.
His commitment comes a week after USC added a second member to its 2020 class in Boubacar Coulibaly, a three-star prospect from San Gabriel Academy. A 6-foot-10, 195-pound center, Coulibaly joins five-star prospect Evan Mobley, who will arrive on campus this summer as the highest-rated basketball recruit in school history.
Dixon-Waters marks the highest-rated recruit yet to join the Trojans’ 2021 class. Santa Ana Mater Dei three-star forward Harrison Hornery committed in October.
USC loses four seniors from this season’s roster and freshman Onyeka Okongwu, a probable lottery pick, is expected to declare for the NBA draft.
USC is awaiting a decision from Chatsworth Sierra Canyon forward Ziare Williams, a five-star prospect who lists USC as one of his final schools.
