USC on the shortened list by Dozier

October 24, 2013 

6-6 junior PJ Dozier of Spring Valley is one of the top players in the country in the junior class despite the fact he will miss the season while recovering from knee surgery. After offers from all over the country, Dozier has his list down to 13 schools according to his father Perry Dozier, a former USC player who is the coach at Spring Valley.

That list is USC, Clemson, North Carolina, NC State, Louisville, Georgetown, Michigan, Kansas, Ohio State, Indiana, Baylor, Mississippi State and Florida.

The Doziers visited North Carolina last weekend to watch practice. "Coach Williams has been down several times to see him," Perry Dozier said. Dozier might take a visit to Georgetown in the next couple of weeks. He has been to USC and Clemson and both are real players for him.

"He likes both of them," his father said. "He loves the guys over at Clemson as well as South Carolina. Of course, he'd like to be close to home but his selection will be more geared towards what will be the best fit for him."

Dozier will layout his five official visits in December. Coaches from all of the 13 have been in to see him.

Dozier is doing extremely well in his rehab according to his father. "Roll the ball out there and he could do tremendously well."

Last season Dozier averaged 18 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds per game.
