Tim Floyd didn’t hesitate when he recruited one-and-done high school phenom O.J. Mayo from West Virginia. O.J., besides suffering from an unfortunate choice of names, is a bit quirky. He recruited himself and then would only allow Floyd to receive his cell phone calls.

Now Floyd has landed actor/rapper Lil’ Romeo. The teenage hip-hop performer signed a national letter 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.

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