USC going after prep school teammates

March 14, 2013 

USC has offered 6-5 Leroy Fludd of Believe Prep in Rock Hill and his teammate 6-3 PG Shadel Millinghaus according to their coach former Winthrop star Tyson Waterman. Both will be scheduling official visits with the Gamecocks once they have a chance to talk with Frank Martin again after their season is completed in a couple of weeks according to their coach, and those visits will take place in early April.

“He really likes them,” Waterman said of Fludd’s interest in the Gamecocks. “They are right around the corner from our program so we can keep our arm around him, and he has family in South Carolina. They are one of the favorable choices at this time.”

Last year at Boys & Girls High School in New York Fludd led his division in rebounding and scoring in leading his team to a state championship. USC was recruiting Fludd last year but he decided to attend prep school for a year for another season of maturing before going to college.

This season he is averaging 26 points and 10 rebounds per game. He is also expected to visit Utah, Colorado State and West Virginia. He was committed to Rutgers last year before deciding to go to the prep school.

Millinghaus is a native of Schenectady, NY and his brother is a freshman guard at Ole Miss. He’s averaging 28 points per game and also has offers from Oregon, West Virginia, Loyola Marymount, Providence, Virginia Tech and others.

“He wants to stay close,” Waterman said. “I would love to place him with coach Martin. I think he has great potential. Oregon is high on him. I do know he likes USC. They are in the top three for both of them.”

Both players visited USC for the Ole Miss game.
